One of the best ZOO's in the world. When you see it, you believe it! Yes, some areas are still really old - the polar bears area is shocking but the bears seem happy most of the time, we have witnessed them jumping in the water and swimming, playing around. The elephant valley is amazing! I also love the Indonesian... More

Decided to go here on my birthday, it was well worth the visit. The zoo is huge, lots of walking, both up hill and down hill. Animals seem to be in a great area which looks very well maintained. The food and drink amazingly was very cheap for what you would expect from a zoo.

I felt a bit sad visiting the Prague Zoo some of the animals where held in very small spaces and seemed a bit cruel. I usually enjoy zoo visits but some of the big mammals where put in very small spaces, I enjoyed the overall walk around but after I left I felt abit depressed. Kids wouldnt know any different...

The Prague Zoo was the largest I have ever been to. They have some of the greatest exhibits with a wide variety of animals! A trip here takes an entire day, so plan ahead. Also, make sure you have good weather because otherwise it will be miserable. You probably won't be able to see the whole thing in one day... More

The zoo is so enormous we've spent almost 5 hours wondering around. The only problem was that we came in march which is off season and because of the cold weather many of the animals were in their cages. also a lot was under construction. and the Cable Car didn't work So it is better to come on season when...

Prague zoo is absolutely massive! A wide variety of animals with massive enclosures and are clearly treated very very well! We were happy to spend the entire day there as there was soooo much to do! Lots for little kids too with playgrounds and lots to explore! My only complaint is that the chair lift was not up to my... More

I visited this zoo on my last day in Prague with my boyfriend. We were both very impressed. This zoo is huge & the layout is very unique. There was so much to see, some animals that I have never seen before in a zoo such as polar bears. It wasn't too busy at all & we had plenty of... More

This is really a wonderful experience. You can easily spend 5-6 hours wondering the massive grounds. You'll need a nice day, otherwise it might be quite miserable. The place is clean and well run, there are plenty of bathrooms and little food stalls throughout the zoo, and they have a very wide selection of animals, from bugs, reptiles, birds, critters,...
