Contrary to some of the reviews, the animals all seemed healthy and well fed, as we observed when outdoors. Plenty of space to roam. Very comprehensive collection in all the areas, including an art project which was designing some masks for the various pens outside.

I visited this place and was not expecting that many number of exhibits since nothing is that large in Minsk but I was in for a surprise. Although this place houses a number of animals, insects and fishes I do feel like the enclosures could...More

I went to the zoo on a Sunday afternoon and as there have been mixed reviews of this zoo, I didn't quite know what to expect, but it's better than I thought it would be. I dislike seeing any animals in small cages and not...More
