Red pandas, funny and grumpy manul cats, great night life exposition as always! You can feed the ducks, may check all the stages of shark embryo. The gift shop is nice as well

We spent nearly four hours at the zoo and saw a wide range of animals and birds. The reptile house is closed on Monday (at least it was on the Monday we visited). A number of the animals were either sleeping inside their habitats or the cages were empty. We felt sorry for some of the animals who were obviously bored or distressed with their uninteresting confinement. Others such as the Orangutans had more space and the company of family. We left with mixed feelings. The children visitors were obviously having a great time and educational experience but in our view more money needs to spent on enhancing the lives of the less fortunate animals in solitary confinement. The zoo has done a great job with the new extension but more work is required.
Food outlets and toilet facilities were plentiful. Long queues were at the ticket office in the afternoon so we recommend getting there early in the morning or maybe booking online.

Most of the animals are kept in very small cages in comparison with other zoos around the world.
Also people can touch and feed lot of animals with their own food altough it is forbidden. But no one cares.
Horrible zoo for all who want to see animals kept in a normal way.

Hello I am not sure about any ones feelings about the old idea of keeping animals in captivity I hope someday it will be as anti social as smoking however I spent a few hours in a very nice park which happens to be a zoo. If you can set aside the thought of the poor creatures that happened to get caught or born in captivity then the zoo park is a very pleasant walk there are many places to get a snack or drink and the toilet facilities are excellent don't be put off by the animals kept there I don't think they could get any better treatment and now they would not survive in the wild.
I found my way there quite unaided on the metro get on the number 5 line it is a circular one so the side you get on doesn't matter pick up on of guide books produced by Moscow transport and you will not go wrong as soon as you come out of the station the zoo is opposite
Enjoy the walk around the park and say hello to the residents I think they will be happy with the company

I spent one and half hour, but I think two are would be enough. Many of the animals were missing. If you want there are plenty of snacks and drinks.
