We spent there a whole day and it was pleasant to explore the area. It's not the best zoo I have seen in my life but it's something nice to do if you are at loose ends!!!

This is a lovely zoo - gorgeous polar bear! Although it didn’t say, there’s discount for Riga pass - so 12 euros for 2 adults and a teen, it was a bargain
