The setting of Ołiwa zoo is beautiful with the forest. The enclosures are hit and miss - some appear too small, but some are abundant. Many set in a way that you can see into them without a fence in the way.

I visited Oliwa zoo with my 10 yr old son last July. It was a really hot day so lot of the animals were just laying in shade restimg. Place is clean and easy to visit from Gdansk or Sopot.
