As it goes for a zoo, it is very big and there are hundreds of animals. A taxi there cost 50 zloty (£10) between 3 and then it was 10 zloty (£2) each entry. They charge very little for a zoo with a lot to offer. We all then got the 134 bus back which stops 15 minutes walk away... More

really nice zoo. cheap entry (worked out as just a few pounds per person). there is a bus to/from it. there is rubbish phone signal when there, but the bus stop home is just outside the zoo. the animals all had lots of room, seemed very healthy etc. we were all impressed with this zoo.

This was a reward to my youngest after all the other sightseeing. We enjoyed the zoo, it is a little smaller than some and it is obvious it is a work in progress but they seem to care for the animals and the little mini zoo was a lot of fun.

Great Zoo on outskirts of Krakow. We took taxi there and local hourly bus back to Main Centre of Krakow. Some very rare Cats indeed really enjoyed. Well maintained & animals very well looked after. Look out for the rare Snow Leopard...... Amazing close up
