“Small but unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

This is said to be the one of the oldest zoos in Europe. We went with our 2 kids and that was not the first zoo in Czech Republic after plzen and Prague. However this one in liberec got its uniqueness by several things. First was of course the white tigers which were located in wuite small rooms but so conveniently located behind the glasses that you can make wonderful photos and videos like if you were sitting together with them. Some of them were laying just close to the glass so yiku could almost touch them. Great thing is that tigers got their kids so there were plenty of cute scenes where mother was leaking the cubs again in couple of centimeters from your hand behind the glass.
In front of the tigers there was a pride of lions without kids... So far... :))). But they were just magnificent... Clean and gracious.
Kids were not willing to go out... But if you think that it was the best rated feature for them this day it is not right... Best was the place where they could go into the fence and play with goats. Once you a bringing them some food being sold just by entrance they are becoming crazy and ready to jump into your hands. Kids just could not believe their eyes and reality...
Fantastic!!!

“A Wonderland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Said to be the oldest zoo in Central Europe, this is a real gem encircled by the most charming residential area in Liberec. The zoo has managed to include a host of different animal varieties in a seemingly small space without giving a sense of crowding. They have it all with elephants, giraffes, zebras, deer, monkeys, big cats, chimps, birds and lots more. A great way to spend a couple of hours in a beautiful setting. Mid-day visits afford you feeding/shows featuring seals, penguins, big cats and elephants. We love this place..! Entrance runs 65-115 Kc/ $3.50-6.00 USD/ 3-5 euro.

“Great way how to spend a nice day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

In 13 ha area the ZOO breeds hundreds of animals.
Dogs are not allowed!
There´s about 2 km of walking distance through the whole ZOO. For those of you who have a small kid with, don´t hesitate to rent a wooden buggy ( for a refundable deposit CZK 500).
Definitely the highlite of the ZOO is a White form of Bengal tigers - the only breed within the Czech (do not miss their feeding).
We were lucky and had a chance to watch Sealions feeding and funny exhibition. It´s worth to watch it.
Little kids can go and walk among the goats, which we found funny.
