5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

It's the best zoo in Ukraine. I've been there over 10 times. Me and my children like it so much.

“Awful life conditions for poor animals.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Awful life conditions for poor animals. They look so sad, they have so small cages. Wouldn't go there again.

“Renovated but still far from European zoos”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

There are a lot of animals, including bears, polar bears, lions, hippo, elephants, and girrafes (and many more animals and birds), aquarium and terrarium as well. You can feed animals with carrot and cabbage (can be bought right there). Sometimes it is not as clean as you would like to.

“go only if you want to feel depressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Located near Skevchenko park , this zoo is a HORROR!!!

Its the first zoo i have visited where guest are allowed to feed the animals(probably because they can not do it themselves). Clearly the animals look sad and the cages/occupations are dirty , small or crowded.

I felt sad for the animals after i visited the zoo.

Regarding collections of animals , well- tigers , elephant , some deer . pigs , wolves etc etc...

its okay if you are board and want to waste time, but if you are going to see animals and have a happy time , go elsewhere .
