Nice zoo, average size, located in woody place near lake. Nice, naturel atmosphere, good interior and buildings. No dislikes, good place to rest and look to different animals.

We went two times. Entrance is 6E for adults. Not expensive. Zoo area is big but not like Berlin Zoo. For Riga, can say enough size and enough to show animals for kids. Adults can see also animals and rest in simple restaurants and cafe. Do not expect luxury cafe and restaurant. Some animals can not seen easily. And you... More

If you like animals, quiet stroll then you must visit Riga's zoo. There is lot of various animals, amazing view of lake and lot of attractions. After visiting zoo you could spend your free time in Mezaparks.

This zoo seems old and tired and the animals doesnt seem to have the best time of their life. If your a fan of zoos like me go and enjoy the animals thewre (there are quite a few), but id rather visit another one.

Riga ZOO is improving itself year by year, so it becomes more interesting. It is very popular place for parents with children to visit, normally it takes half a day or even more, because there are much to see and do. Next to ZOO is Mežaparks, huge park with asphalted roads for bicycles, roller skates etc. within territory there is... More

The zoo was great it was a good size with loads of animals to see, we spent longer there than we thought we would do. We went on a rainy day in late June so it was not busy at all which was nice and we could see all the animals properly without crowds. It is extremely good value for... More

We visited the zoo as part of our zoo-visiting ritual that we do in every city that we visit. This one was unexpectedly nice with a cool variety of animals though some cages looked a bit small. Unfortunately no elephants or zebras but lovely giraffes are there. Don't forget to pass by the tropical building, it has some quite unusual... More

Nice place to visit. Have in mind that you need at least 3-4 hours to see all exhibitions. The animals seem taken care of and healthy. A lot of zoo keepers walking around taking care of animals and environment, quite big enclosures, no terrible smells. Parking on the spot only 3 Euro for all day. Entrance 6 Euro (I think).
