    We went there as 4 adults and a 2,5 year old toddler... the fish was a great attraction and there is a fair variety of quantity. Live seal shows and a shark “tunnel”. It is located inside a shopping mall (mall needs some maintenance). All in all a good outing and recommended if your spending a long time in SPB.

    This was a great experience!!! I did not have a booking, but made one when I got there. I showed up when they opened and there was availability. It’s clear that the animals are well cared for and happy, and the staff were super welcoming and spoke great English! The only thing I couldn’t figure out was how to get into the building, but a kind local helped me out.

    The birds have relatively large cages, and the tiny monkeys didn't look crowded. BUT, we only saw one giraffe, two lions in a very small enclosure, a single tiger, lethargically lying around. There was one lonely ice bear, pacing around. The animals looked desolate, distressed and very demotivated. Most of these animals belong in the wild, and not in these dark, damp conditions. I despair.

    The old St. Petersburg Zoo is hardly up to the standard of Modern Zoos. The animals, especially the Tigers and Bears, have very little space for to move, they also lack privacy - normally zoos have a front area open to the public but a back area where the animals can avoid the visitors. Here mostly they can't do that. The level of English is as usual in St. Petersburg quite poor. On the other hand, the aviaries look decent, the petting zoo is nice for kids and there are some attractions such as a carousel which my daighter greatly enjoyed. And of course, it is all quite cheap. I think the Powers that Be should reduce the amount of animals on display to allow them better living conditions.

    How could anyone treat an animal this way. This company should be ashamed of themselves. Instead of giving an animal the home it needs you give it one based off of its performance. 0-5

    Park babochek truly is a most wonderful place and I am happy to have visited. The atmosphere is incredible, like something out of a fairytale. From the moment you walk in you are basking in such colourful beauty it really is a sight to behold. The warm and friendly nature of the staff is massive plus and really shows how excellent the business is. Even as a tourist I felt very accommodated by the staff and was overwhelmed at how helpful they were.

    The butterflies are so beautiful that you would have no idea that you are on a shop floor and instead would think you're in a magical menagerie. I would highly recommend this to everyone, especially tourist as the busy nature of Saint Petersburg can often be overwhelming so it is nice to find such a calm and relaxing environment to rest your weary feet after a long day sightseeing. Five stars for every aspect.
