Lots of interesting animals, clean and fun but sad to see the lone polar-bear and grizzly bear pacing back and forth. Not very appealing if you like animals. The polar bear seemed very apathinc and skinny and had no shade from the sun. Next door was a Grizzly(?) that was just pacing back and forth and looked bored. Would reccomend... More

We had a few free hours in Riga, therefore decided to visit this zoo. It has many animals, nice tropical exposition and nice facilities. Even though it was March and snow had just melted down, the zoo was vivid and interesting to visit. Also, staff was really friendly and helpful.

The zoo is very good value for your money. They have alot of different animals and although the zoo looks old and there are a few empty exhibitions, it is great. A little sad that alot of animals appeared to be on their own.
