18 euros ? I'm sorry to say that it was the poorest Zoo I've ever seen in my life. Very little number of animals with little variety. Not very well organized and the animals look tired and dirty...I felt sad for them. I rated as 3 stars , only for the dolphine show..was basic dolphine show but worth a visit... More

This is a nice place to visit with kids. The animals are to be seen quite close by. Plan to visit so that you can see the Dolphin show. Its 3 times in a day, with first one at 11.30am. You will enjoy the mischievous creatures and their antics. There are large animals and many reptiles. Plan to spend about... More

Loved it here! A must see of this city! I was very impressed with the energy this place gives, as I was walking and admiring the animals and the nature!

This is a nice zoo with a lot of animals. I was impressed by the variety and excited to see animals that I hadn't seen in zoos closer to home, e.g. bears, gorillas and a panther. That being said the enclosures for some of the animals (e.g. the big cats) seem too small and, aside from the dolphin show, there... More

There are lots of animals here to see from lions to bears to otters. The also provide a dolphin show for those who want to wait. HOWEVER the enclosures for some of these animals are very small. You can see that they are doing allot of work to rectify this but it is clearly an old zoo that is in... More

I don't usually like zoos but this one is beautiful. No bars if not absolutely necessary and animals had loads of room. They all seemed very calm and relaxed which was lovely to see. They were left to their own devices and not locked outside.for the audience's entertainment. I can't wait to go back.

Lovely way to spend a lazy day. Good weather helped but took a nice long slow stroll round and seen all the animals. Personally think it is better value for money than the aquarium.
