I am a former neighbor of the park and have seen it's transformation. I must say from all the animal parks and zoos I have been in, this was the most attractive one for a simple reason: Animals seemed the happiest (that they can be in a closed environment). All animals are strong, fit and active, not like the usual... More

There may not be too much to do in Athens for children - unless they are into culture. Great to find this zoo on internet (not mentioned in guide book). Bit of a trek from Athens - metro to Doukissis Plakentias then bus 319 (using Athens transport day ticket) - we had to wait 25 minutes for bus. Get off... More

Located at Spata just at the suburbs of Athens...This is a great day out even if you are a solo traveller...Very big animal collection, plus a show with dolphins and sea lions....don't miss the lemurs, the reptiles with the huge Nile crocodile on display.Also, white tigers, brown bears wolves and so so many other animals there...Additions are made occasionally so...

I was so excited to go there, because the reviews sounded really amazing, but at first, going there with a metro and a bus was like a nightmare. You need to be on the metro for 30 minutes, then you need to take a bus for 40 minutes and since zoo's webpage doesn't say the bus stop, where to get... More

Having regularly visited great zoo's like San Diego, Frankfurt, Zurich etc, I was surprised to find a smaller, but decent zoo in Athens. Besides having a great collection of birds and other specials (white tigers, jaguars, bird of prey show or educational dolphin show for kids), it has a good space for some species, ie savannah (zebras, oryx, giraffes etc)...

I am not a big fan of zoos. However due to the insistence of the rest of the members of my family I have visited quite a few. The one in Spata, Athens, has proved to be a real fun day out. Though the actual zoo is not as big as similar ones in other European countries, it still hosts... More

A greta experience, very nice place to visit at athens. The only negative was the cafe which was not clean (tables were not clean and chairs her and there, the staff of the cafe was just chating with other staff and actually did not work, leaving the cafe in a mess). I visited the park mid of june 2014

A beautiful place full of interesting animals with excellent facilities. We go at 6pm. It was a good time cause most of the animals are in action. Very funny place the Big Cage with the lemurs that you walk inside of it and they come to you to play with them. Giraffes, penguins, bears, lions, white tigers, black panthers and... More

The location of the zoo isn't the best. We went there right after arriving in Athens as it was in our way to the hotel. We had to take the taxi as the metro couldn't get you anywhere close to the park and we paid about 27 euro. After leaving, we had to wait for 45 minutes for the only... More
