This review first featured on North East Nerd (http://www.northeastnerd.co.uk/) As far as zoos go, Prague is great. It was similar to Edinburgh Zoo in that a lot of the walking is uphill and it can be tiring. We had prepared ourselves sandwiches that morning because we didn't want to spend any more money than necessary (although we came home with... More

The best thing we did all week. The zoo is huge, with loads to see; we actually ran out of time and missed a few animals after 5 hours of walking minus lunch. The animals seem happy, and their living conditions good. Plenty of animals you don't see in every zoo, and the layout of the zoo was very nice.

Best ZOO in Central/Eastern Europe and still under development of new pavillons and attraction. You can not only see the animals but you can educate yourself in topic on nature. You will need full day to visit the ZOO and enjoy the time there.

As I visited a lot of European and Czech zoological gardens I can well compare and I think Prague Zoo is the best. A lot of beautiful and interesting animals in good and still upgraded enclosures, a lot of accompanying program and almost every weekend some special event. Appropriate amount of restaurants, machines for drinking and souvenir shops. The fact,... More

Really nice pleace where the animals have a almost natural place where to live, where visitors are close, but it does not disturb them that much.

Wow! This zoo definitely earns its rank as one of the top 10 zoos in the world. By the end of our visit my FitBit says I walked close to 8 miles. I think that is because there was so much to see and we could not find the most efficient way to see it all We want to the... More

Being on a Familytrip we decided to visit the prague zoo. We were absolutely surprised. You can see the Kattas running and sitting near you, without being in a cage, there is a small Chairlift up the hill, to see the Horses and lots of small paths and many playgrounds.
