“Spectacular View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you are ever in Kharkov, Ukraine, you must see this amazing water fall that is right next to the zoo. It has these amazing steps of water that flow and it is a great to watch the sunset as well too!

“Sad zoo.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

Poor standard, depressed animals in tiny cages, generally a sad place to visit with an outrageous entrance fee. Go to the zoo in Kyiv instead.

“Charming zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

I thought this zoo was charming with lots of exotic animals. There was an icecream stand on almost every corner. You could buy lettuce and fruitshells to feed the animals, which was very interested. The were used to children feeding them. They had a good variety of monkey races. I talked for a long time with a racoon, that wasn´t feeling very well, it was neurotic. A horse was riding around with a carriage and you could buy rides. The racoon was only calm, when it heard the bells attached to the horsecarriage. The place is very children friendly.

“Depressing Zoo”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012 via mobile

I didn't even realize this place was a zoo for the first 5 minutes. There are no real signs and it is impossible to tell what an animal cage is and what is just a patch of grass until you actually spot a random depressed animal laying on a rock.

Most of the cages look like that if the animals actually wanted to they could easily escape and I was half expecting to get attacked by a random lion just walking down the path.

I also don't think they have any zookeepers working here.

“It's the best zoo in Ukraine.”
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.
