“Old Fashioned Zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

While it was interesting to see the display of Siberian creatures all in one place, the zoo was old-fashioned by American standards and the space given to the animals was small. I felt bad for them.
Bathrooms are hard to find and security is non-existent. We saw a group of drunk Russian men antagonizing a poor male lion. They even reached in to his enclosure to smack his paws. This would have been a crime in the US.
Overall, it was a good experience, but best to go in Summer when things are easier and more accessible.

“Probably the best place to visit in Novosibirsk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Beautiful modern zoo with many exotic animals. The best zoo I've ever seen and definitely better than the one in New Delhi. White bears are the best thing to see here. And make sure to take a ride on the observing circle - you will get a memorable view of city.

Lots of big cats
Dislikes:
People feeding the Polar Bears icecreams - not good.
Still, not a bad zoo and certainly better than London Zoo!
