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.

This is a world class zoo. It is obvious that the staff care greatly for the animals. The outside areas for the animals were very good, albeit that most of the animals were in their inside quarters when we visited, being a cold November day. The gorillas were wonderful, especially the two young ones who kept us entertained for ages as they played chase with each other. Good facilities. Please support it by visiting.

I absolutely loved this zoo!! The lay out is lovely, although you do a lot of walking, you end up seeing the animals from different angles, their enclosures are large and most of the animals seemed very entertained and content.The zoo opens at 10, closes at 4 and you definitely need to get in there early if you want to see everything at your leisure!

We wisited the Zoo on 19th of November .
The location and the place is beautyful and there are many exotic animals in big sort.
The zoo is really in nature and perfectly cleaned.
It was our last day in Prague with my little daughter and my 70th years old Mother .
We really enjoyed the zoo but when we become hungry we got an unpleasant experience .
We wanted eat something in the zoo but nower accepted Euro or credit card !
I don't know why ..... I thoght this zoo visited by lot of turists and Prague also a part of the EU.
So we had to finished our visit earlyer than we planed ......

A big area with lots of animals and places loved by kids. There are a lot of attractions for kids and grownups: polar bears, penguins, elephants, giraffes, owls, reindeer, etc. The kids can ride a horse, or play on slide.
