Blue Cow

I highly recommend Latvia's Blue Cow. It is the special type of cow that you cannot see anywhere else in the world :)

We both had a great time as my friend from London really enjoyed his time there. One thing I have to emphasize- a great value for the money. Particularly if you visit Zoo on Monday (as we did) - there were no crowds, etc. Excellent! p.s. Just a pitty Newly built house for giraffe's was still closed.

A good zoo not far from Riga- well worth a visit, even in winter. The giraffe house was superb and the creatures beautiful. There were places to shelter or warm up. The reptile house was well laid out. Loved the tigers and their cub- playing in the snow. Wolf, flamingoes, meerkats, camels, loads of monkeys, lots of different birds, reindeer... More

We got the tram to the zoo, which made it very easy to find. The entrance fee is very reasonable. The animals are clearly well cared for, healthy and happy. It was very cold the day we went, maybe -5, so I was pleased to see that some animals were kept inside out of the cold. The highlight was the... More

I've visited quite a few zooes in different countries. In my opinion, Riga Zoo is one of the best. It's fairly compact but well organized and fun to explore. Also, it feels as animals are really well taken care of. A nice place to visit with children.

A good zoo in a lovely setting. Interesting range of animals with signs in English throughout. Informative and enjoyable two hours. Easily accessed by tram 11.

We went on a rainy weekday afternoon, think we only saw three other people, but it was out of season. We had a walk around not really caring what animals we saw, so I would be a surprise when we got there! There were some great animals, new animal enclosures for the wolves and the giraffe house are brilliant to... More

Too many peacock fowl, but very Nice zoo! I loved the secretary birds especially. The ride there is cheap by tram. Student discount.

It was a smaller zoo than many I've been to , but I thought that the reptile tunnel was amazing and still was a lot of animals to see , also was cheap to get into . Also wheelchair friendly, had no serious issues .. meerkats was really the only animal unable to see for wheelchair users .

Riga Zoo was an exciting place to spend a few hours and the entrance fee was only 6€ per adult which was extremely less than what we were expecting (and willing to pay). Parking fir the whole day costs 3€. Lots of animals incl. Hippos, giraffes, monkeys, meerkat and so many others. There are worse ways to spend your 6€!
