Go there in the early morning to the opening time. You will like it without no doubts! Big, atmospheric, with great number of animals and birds, it will be good variant not only for those who are with children, but for those who and alone and adult.
Tasty food in the cafe opposite open-air cage with giraffes and zebras.

I know this zoo all my life, and it has basically not improved. I can only feel sorry for the animals encaged in rather minimalistic confinements. The quantity of animals on the limited space of this zoo is not of interest. Rather fewer species, but higher quality spacious living quarters within a species specific habitat-like environment. This zoo rates low on my list of worldwide zoos that I have had the luxury to visit during my travels.

We went to the zoo expecting to kill a couple of hours but ended up staying here for most of the day!
There's plenty to see for everyone, an amazing aquarium & a play-park for children. There's also a planetarium which we didn't visit as it was getting late by the time we found it.
The cafe was very good value for money too in a city where a burger will set you back £14.
An adult ticket cost 19 Euros & included entry to the zoo, the aquarium & the planetarium.

If you travel with children or if you like to visit a Zoo where the animals are well taken care of, then don't miss it. It was a really enjoyable experience.
