“Pleasant city centre zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

I visited this zoo on a summer day when it was full of families enjoying the sunshine and wandering around looking at the animals – a very pleasant atmosphere. The zoo is located in a very large park like area with lots of old trees, park benches and flower beds.
The animals are housed in a variety of houses and enclosures – there are elephants, tigers, giraffes, hippos, rhinos, gibbons as well as birds of prey and other birds. When you arrive, there is a notice on the main alleyway with details of new arrivals in the zoo (both new acquisitions and new births among the animals); there is also a timetable of when you can see animal feeding times – but beware – they don’t always happen on schedule, we went to see the rhinos being fed and the session ended ten minutes before it was due to start.
The zoo shop is also worth visiting as it is housed in beautifully reconstructed wooden house from the 1920's - the wooden roof tiles on the roof outside are lovely and inside there are wooden floors, walls, beams - but the gift stock is nothing special. For nature lovers, some of the tres throughout the park are hundreds of years old and truly spectacular.
There are lots of ice-cream stands, lots of places to buy drinks or snacks in summer – when we’ve visited in winter it’s hard to find anywhere to get a drink inside the park.
By Polish prices, it’s not cheap – 49 pln for 2 adults and 1 child. Parking is on the road outside – but read the signs carefully : the tow –away zone really is a tow-away zone so don’t park there if you don’t want the car towed away!

“Great zoo for primates!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2012

I love zoos and animal based attractions in general. This zoo is overall very nice. Not terribly modern, but clean and spacious with a wide variety of unique exhibits. The exhibits themselves were generously sized and seemed appropriate for the animals in with they housed. With that being said, water management seemed to be an issue and a lot of the free standing water was green with algae, but this appeared to be the only obvious deficiency.
I loved the baboon enclosure - the zoo houses a large population of the monkey, and they are segregated by moat rather than fencing, making them easier to photography (bring a good lense for distance though) and to enjoy their antics!
