“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2011

We visited last weekend and it was really nice. They have lot of animals and different themes, part of it is on a hill with really nice views of the city. They have bunch of places for food and beer and overall it was a very enjoyable way to spend a few hours on a sunny day.

“Good way to spend a sunny afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2011

Plzen is not a particularly large town, so I was pleasantly surprised to find this decent zoo. As you will be frequently reminded, it has the most animal species of all Czech zoos.
Even if you don't spend too long studying the animals, it should take a couple of hours to walk around all the enclosures, and there are some creatures that will keep your attention for a while!
It certainly is a nice change of pace from the more historical attractions that are typically on offer in the town.
The only downside is that there isn't much English signage around the zoo.
You can even follow the Zoo on Facebook, if you would like to see photos of some of the animals before visiting.
