Owner description: Prague Zoological Garden is situated near the center of the Czech capital, in a unique rugged landscape on the bank of the Vltava River. It opened in 1931 and during its existence of more than 80 years it has risen to become one of the most prestigious zoos in the world. Today, it is the second most visited tourist destination in the Czech Republic, just after Prague Castle. 4,600 animals and 680 species live in Prague Zoo. You can explore 12 pavilions and 150 exhibits over 58 hectares. The kids will love the Bororo Reserve, chairlift, mini-train, observation tower, paddling pool and Children’s Zoo. The pride of the zoo is its Elephant Valley, home to a sizeable herd of Asian elephants. The Giant Salamander House, where you can see the largest amphibians in the world – the critically endangered Chinese Giant Salamanders – is extraordinary as well; and the African House with an adjacent vast meadow inhabited by herds of antelopes and giraffes is worth your attention, too.

Wow! I was stunned at the expanse and the variety of this zoo. The elephants and the giraffes were a particular treat. I shall heartily recommend the zoo to all of my visitors to Prague and I shall make sure to get back there again. Also, if you're a senior, (over 70) then admission is just 1czk! Well recommended!

Absolutely lovely zoo which is being updated in certain parts. Our only problem was it was heavy rain but we still went round for 4 hours and never got round all of it. Would be a great place to visit with lots of different animals to see especially on a nice sunny day. Very easy to get to as bus stops right outside it.

Really, really nice place to see. One of the best world zoo´s I have ever seen. It is so sad, that each 10 years the floods destroy the whole bottom part and it has to be renewed again and again and again.

If you have kids, this place can be fun for 3-4 hours. The Zoo Praha is very large and has a great variety of animals. It is reachable within the city center very easily (Metro C towards Letňany get off at Nádraží Holešovice. From there you take bus no. 112 which is like a zoo shuttle bus). It is not a must see but if you have the time for it you will enjoy the visit.
