The best place to visit the zoo is sunny weekend in the summer. Area is very big so make sure to have plenty of time in order to see all of the animals. Number of species is great indeed. Some animals are allowed to be fed. On the territory there are several places where you can have a snack. Also... More

Wow...amazing how people rave about how great this zoo is! Yes, some of the exhibits are pretty awesome and the grounds are simply gorgeous. HOWEVER, keeping a giant bear the size of an oversized truck is downright cruel!!!!!!!! The polar bears did not exactly look happy on lame poorly painted blue cement. They could do a MUCH better job by... More

I have been visiting the zoo for over ten years now, taking groups of children. It is a great place and has improved tremendously over the years. It now has new reception buildings and great facilities. The animals are well looked after and in spacious facilities. It has a very wide selection of animals and reptiles and you could easily...

I wasn't expecting the settlers kept in such a good condition. A very good opportunity to visit liger, snow leopard and other original wild animals.

If you came to Nsk in summer, this will be the point of visiting. Many animals and birds, rich amphibian collection and,of course Ligr! The hybrid of tiger and lion. Beautiful and calm place.

This is definitely one of the best zoos I have ever been to (and I have been to very many). The animals here are unique and very interesting. The rules for feeding animals are very poor with many people feeding them lollies and ice cream. A few children were feeding the bears, cookies, which was quite sad to see as... More

It was a great place to spend during the sunny afternoon. The gounds are well looked after and you feel the community spirit when looking at animals upkeep. Great settings, you feel more like in a park.
