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.

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

The kids loved the day in the zoo. Many different animals and the day did not cost a lot. 20 zl for taxi one way from Krakow. 100 zl for the zoo for 2 adults and 2 children.

Really enjoyed this day out. Catch the number 134 bus from Cracovia Stadium and it takes about 20 mins, Its situated in a lovely wooded area and has a lovely feel about it. Plenty of animals who appeared happy enough. Saw a species of wolf i have never seen before, looks like a cross between a fox and a wolf... More
