“The area is very pleasant for visitors but hardly so for the animals.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

The Tashkent zoo makes an interesting visit to see how Tashkent families spend their days off but is probably not recommended for animal welfare-minded visitors. The pattern is familiar from many other zoos in the former USSR - a relatively large selection of animals in very small cages with little activity other than waiting for food from the visitors. Indeed the combination of signs "Do not feed the animals" and, next to these signs, stands selling "food to feed the animals" is rather unique. That said, the zoo has also a relatively large aquarium and a number of other attractions for children and stands selling hot dogs, pop corn, ice cream etc. Easily accessible by bus from downtown. We walked from the TV tower along the railway line which gives a nice overview of "backyard Tashkent".

“Dissapointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

The animals are mostly in enclosures that are very artificial and not like the natural environment.
Boring and not worth visiting unless you have really a lot of time.
