We have been to many zoos and Gdansk is certainly close to the top of our list. Unfortunately, it is quite far from the historic center, so you need to take a bus (that drops you off right at the entrance) or drive (as we...More

The setting of Ołiwa zoo is beautiful with the forest. The enclosures are hit and miss - some appear too small, but some are abundant. Many set in a way that you can see into them without a fence in the way.

I visited Oliwa zoo with my 10 yr old son last July. It was a really hot day so lot of the animals were just laying in shade restimg. Place is clean and easy to visit from Gdansk or Sopot.

Large and fun zoo with most of the habitats suitable for their residents. It will take hours to explore so pick good shoes. Or you can take the zoo train, but then you will miss things. So much to see, hear and smell! Very noisy...More
