Nice zoo with a lot of animals that we (I am from Brazil) are not used to see in our country! For example, the beautiful Ligre, wolves, and polar bear!! There was a big bonfire right in the entrance, to keep visitors warm. I would go again if I had the chance !

I recently moved to Novosibirsk to teach English. My wife and I visited the zoo on our day off and we didn't have time to see it all. It's all surrounded by forests with walking paths making it beautiful in the fall weather. Huge variety of animals too. I can't wait to try walking through it during the winter.

There are many train wagoons exhibited, each of which tells a different story. The only problem was the timing of the visit, which was right after a 30-hour Trans-Siberian ride, and I was sick of inner atmosphere of trains!

Being one or the only location in the world with new feline species. A lion mixed with a leopard for example.

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
