I think there are better zoos quite near especially Lešná near Zlín. Brno zoo is located in quite steep hill so with small children it's not very handy. You can spend there nice time thou, the visit is for half day, so it's nice to go to dam afterwards, which is quite close and you can do small boat trip... More

In recent years they have improved the ZOO a lot, but there is still a lot of work to do. Lot of exhibitions are very old with old fences and lot of dirt and some trees inside. I´m not surprised that the animals stayed in the houses and to not go outside. Restaurant in the ZOO is terrible (see the... More

Be prepared to go up. This zoo is built in a mount, so you will be climbing half of the time. Luckily, it's the first half, so you're not so tired. When you're coming out of the zoo, you can always roll down the hill directly into your car/tram/bus. Me and my wife had the awesome idea of going there... More

This is a very big zoo. Too many animals and all kind of animals. To see all the zoo you will need about 4 hours. Prefer going in the morning. In the zoo there restaurants, cafeterias and all you need. Tram and bus connection is available to go there!

Family-day activity, kids will surely have fun. Prepare for a walk, wear nice shoes. We've been to zoo twice, our first visit, we ride the zoo train up the hill and then walk down, second visit we did the opposite. We think the second visit is better, or if you still have energy you can skip the train (depends on... More

Zoo on the outskirts of town. On a rather steep hill (you need to take the stipendiary zootrain). Obsolete exposure (monkeys, exotic pavilion). Missing the big cats except tigers. Pride is rearing polar bears and Kamchatka bears. Parking is absolutely tragic. For children, a petting zoo (rabbits, goats, llamas). Quality exposure of Canadian wolves and beavers.

It's HUGE! Definitely take good walking shoes and come early - to see everything you definitely need the whole day. You do have to walk a lot uphill and downhill there. It's easily accesible by a tram (no 1 if I remember correctly), and it's not that far away from the city (20mins?). My favourite was the meerkats. We must... More

Very nice zoo for smaller children. It goes uphill all the way so a good tip is to take the little zootrain to the top at first, and then go downhill to see all the animals. We went there in July but there was not crowded at all. The tigerrestaurant offers nice food and they have a childrens menu too.... More
