This zoo is surprisingly well kept and is a great place to spend an afternoon (on a summer day) with your partner or kids. Whereas not a must-see this place clearly provides a great environment for relaxation after a potentially stressful city tour in Novosibirsk. PS: they have ligers (a cross bread between tigers and lions)

The Zoo is in the real forest so you see the trees all around you. One would expect animals in bigger cages given the fact that they are in a huge park. But cages are small. The polar bears just had a child, which is fun to watch, and they are quite good performers, playing with plastic boxes and diving... More

There are "ligras" - mix of lion and tiger and even "liligras" = lion+ligra. White beers swimming pool is really great - they make real attraction with empty plastic 10-litres bottles.

the zoo is easy to find and a nice escape from the city if you have an hour or two. cages feel like cages and seem small, but there's a huge range of animals. there are buildings where they host the animals that can't take the cold, and i went into 2: one was great, with the tapirs, zebra and...

You will see polar bears who stand-up and clap 'hands' for an ice-cream that visitors drop to them. You will see and if lucky hear lions. Monkeys are so funny that not only your children but most likely you as well will spend half an hour laughing at them. White tigers, leopards, Emas etc... Really nice place to go with... More

They have an incredible habitat for primates. The polar bears are awesome and so are the tiger/lions!!! It is a wonderful zoo.

There are a lot of animals(snow tigers, ligers,polar bears, monkey, etc.) and cafes, artificial waterfall, sculptures of dinozaures, carussels. The best time to visit Zoo - is summer. If you will go walk through dendropark, you will stay at the bank of the river Ob, where you can swim, play tennis, and your children can get on the little railway... More

As a plus, I have to say that there are a lot of animals you won't find often (said from a Westerner's perspective) -- they also have a lot of Siberian animals, which is interesting. BUT the living conditions of the animals are terrible, for most of them cages are too small with no possibility to hide from the masses... More
