Very nice, small hillside zoo
Jun 2019 • Friends
Had a really good time on a lovely June afternoon strolling around Decin Zoo with a friend. If you want to see as many exotic species as possible, this zoo is not for you. But if you're coming for a nice stroll with friends and family with lots of places to rest and relax, give Decin a chance. Animals on exhibit include brown bears, a number of mammals and rodents, a few wild cats, several primate species and Eurasian and tropical birds.

Pros: very relaxing atmosphere, very green, lots of playgrounds. Enclosures are big for most animals (e.g. lots of space for capras and other ungulates, and a pretty big enclosure for the Siberian brown bear with places to hide) and the enclosures are well looked after. Most animals I saw looked well and did not show problematic or stereotypical behaviour. A zoo as small as this one should not try to attract visitors with exotic animals they are not equipped to look after and, for the most part, this one doesn't. The entry fee (100 Kr) is very fair given that you can walk around for at least 2-3 hours, discovering new things.

Cons: It's a hillside zoo and I think it would be a challenge for people pushing strollers, let alone for people in a wheelchair. Some animals, however pretty they are to look at, are almost impossible to keep properly in small zoos, including large birds (like owls and falcons) and large wild cats; there is certainly some room for improvement with regard to their enclosures at Decin.

Tiny Zoo!
Apr 2018 • Couples
A really small, sweet and adorable zoo with a number of interesting species. The highlight is for sure the beautiful brown bears. The zoo is situated at the top of a very steep hill, and many of the pathways are quite sloped, so be prepared for a fair bit of climbing! There is a nice cafe and the zoo often runs fun activities for children.

Very friendly little zoo, children love it.
Aug 2017 • Couples
The zoo is not big but very cosy. The animals look good and happy. There are all sorts of little interactive play signs for children with information about the animals and a nice playground. They have a lot of europian native animals wich we liked a lot. They dont have big animals like lions or elephants but it is still very nice.

Arranged in the natural environment with a close contact. Grizzly bears are the feature of the place and can be seen pretty close.

Fun and experience

Very nice small zoo on the hill in Děčín situated in the forest. There are lot of activities for small as well as for older children. Ideal place to chill out not only for family with children.

Very few animals in there
Jul 2016 • Couples
The entry fee did not seem reasonable (however small it was) given there is only a few animals. Big / proper ZOO would actually give you better value for money. The wolves fighting and grizzly just chilling in his pool were cool though. I would only go here if you happen to be nearby and have an hour to spare.

Maybe nice for kids
Jun 2016 • Couples
This is a small zoo, not very impressive, the cages are pretty small too. The path can be steap and has loose stones. Definetly not suitable for wheelchairs. For kids this place is probably great with a big playground.
