Just one of those cafe's on a little square. No risk having drinks, but nothing special. We had an iced coffee, which was good but quite filling.

We had been here some years ago and were interested to see changes we had read about in the local "In Your Pocket" magazine. So we went again on 8 May. Easy to reach on bus 134 which starts at Cracovia and ends 20 minutes later at the Zoo. Buses are twice an hour on weekdays and 4 times an... More

Large zoo situated in the centre of the Wolski Forest containing all the animals you would expect to see. However all the descriptions were in Polish, as you would expect I suppose, but no other languages were catered for. Some of the animals, in particular the monkeys and large cats did look bored, and it was sad to see some... More

I visited this zoo with my teenage son and my toddler son after reading reviews on here. We got the bus from outside the football stadium which was a short walk from our accommodation, it cost around 70p each single. The entry price was about £3.50 which offers excellent value for money. I felt that some of the enclosures were... More

My fiance and I chose to get a taxi to the zoo from the centre of Krakow and it cost 26zl. Admission in to the zoo was very cheap, costing only 36zl for two of us. We spent almost 3 hours inside and enjoyed seeing so many different species of animal that aren't normally found in zoos. Bit disappointed to... More

The Zoo is like the Zoo all over the world. In my opinion, animals must live in their natural sourandings so I'm not a fan of the zoo.

Recommend to see the animals and also to go for a walk in a beautiful nature inside and outside the zoo. Take the bus from kraków stadium and go.

We took the advice of our hotel reception and went there by taxi but as many other reviewers have said its really easy to get to and from by bus as we found on... More
