“Not very good...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2008

I love to visit the zoo in nearly every city I visit. I have to admit that Tallinn Zoo was a bit disappointing. Some of the animals had very small and boring cages, and I felt sorry for them. But it looks like something was about to change. The elephants had a quite new and large area, and a sign told us that they're planning a new area also to the lions. But at the moment I think you'll be a bit disappointed if you're expecting a zoo like in London, Kristiansand etc.

“Tallinn Zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2007

During a three day city break in Tallinn, Estonia my girlfriend and I enjoyed a morning trip to Tallinn Zoo.

The best way to reach the Zoo is by No. 6 Trolley Bus which leaves the city centre. The stop you want is called Zoo. This is also near the open air museum, however we didn’t visit it.

The zoo has an excellent range of animals including large cats, monkeys, deer, birds even a Polar Bear! Bizarrely there are also kangaroos and elephants which is fairly amusing considering winter temperatures can reach -15degC! There is also reptile house, however this is closed on Mondays.

Tallinn zoo is an old fashioned zoo, some of the enclosures are very small, with concrete floors and dilapidated. It is very important to remember that like most of Eastern Europe, progress takes time, investment and money, but progress is being made. Despite this the animals are well cared for, healthy and live in spotlessly clean conditions.

The zoo is a great mornings entertainment, very cheap and accessible.
