We visited Moscow Zoo on a Saturday afternoon tickets cost around £6.50 for that you get an extensive range of animals to see including bears and tigers.

What a great zoo! I spent nearly five hours at the zoo and saw a very broad range of animals and birds. It was pretty cold so the animals were mostly inside. The Moscow zoo has over 7500 animals representing about 1000 species and covers...More

Though this isn't a top destination; for kids it might still be worth it. By international standards it is ok; but it is still an option for families, conveniently located downtown.

Very broad range of animals and birds. Can easily keep children, particularly young ones, happy for quite a few hours. The animals seem well cared for but whilst we were there we did not see any organized feedings.

Habitats looked clean and well maintained, though a bit small, and the animals seemed healthy. Variety is good but not spectacular—I was expecting a little more from the zoo in the capital city of the world’s largest country—but there were a lot of animals from...More

Cages for animals are small. Animals are not well kept, many have skin problems. There were many empty cages.

The neighborhood is divided into two major halves by
Krasnaya Presnya street: the southern part highlights
Moscow city – businesses contained in skyscrapers
along with the White House - where the Russian
government works. The north is a bit more relaxed and
casual, visitors here will find the Moscow zoo,
National Centre for Contemporary Arts and a number of
fine restaurants. The beautiful neo-gothic Cathedral
