If you are ever in Kharkov, Ukraine, you must see this amazing water fall that is right next to the zoo. It has these amazing steps of water that flow and it is a great to watch the sunset as well too!

Awful life conditions for poor animals. They look so sad, they have so small cages. Wouldn't go there again.

There are a lot of animals, including bears, polar bears, lions, hippo, elephants, and girrafes (and many more animals and birds), aquarium and terrarium as well. You can feed animals with carrot and cabbage (can be bought right there). Sometimes it is not as clean...More

Located near Skevchenko park , this zoo is a HORROR!!! Its the first zoo i have visited where guest are allowed to feed the animals(probably because they can not do it themselves). Clearly the animals look sad and the cages/occupations are dirty , small or...More
