I never imagined myself going to a zoo in the middle of Siberia but that was rather fun! It was a bit odd to be among a lot of russian children, but I saw a lot of animal which are rare in my home country.

Definitely best in Russia. Must for visit in Novosibirsk. Zoo is very large. It will take whole day there if you want to see all animals. There are places to eat just prepared Shashlyk for nice price. But it should be visited in Summer because in winter many animals live in warm places and not available for visitors. Some cages...

Arguably the best zoo in Russia. Huge, with large spaces for animals and the feel that You are actually out in nature reserve rather than in zoo... Must visit!

This is a must see when visiting Novosibirsk in the summer. One of the most impressive zoos I've ever seen. Be sure to allow ample time. It really takes several hours to see and enjoy everything!

I love this ZOO. It is really easy to spend whole day there. There are a lot of animals. The greatest collection of felines. Beautiful ligar (hybride of lion and tiger). the only one thing it is not a good idea to come there during the lunch time with children. There are not only animals but also a good amount... More

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...
