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.

After a few days strolling around the beautiful city of Kraków, we fancied something a bit different. After reading reviews on here we picked the Zoo. 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

For less than £4 this zoo was very good. We took a taxi from our hotel in the Jewish Quarter that cost less then £10. When we first arrived it didn't seem very big but once you start walking around, you realise it is a lot larger than it seems. Some of the zoo was being renovated and there were... More

We visited the Zoo on a Tuesday. We caught the 134 bus from outside the Cracovia Football Stadium. The journey was approx 20 mins which cost 5.60 zloty for 2 adults. The bus will terminate at the Zoo, so you will not need to count your 'stops'. On the return journey it took approx 25 mins. So you may need... More

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

We got a taxi to the zoo for 50 zloty from krakow square. The zoo was worth the trip. Snacks were cheap. Mini zoo for the children. Only problem was when we left, there are no taxis waiting and the bus does not go to the square. You need 2 buses to get back. Luckily a passerby kindly phoned a... More
