“Kyiv Zoo - great alternative for week-end pastime with kids”
Review of The Kiev Zoo

The Kiev Zoo
Reviewed March 25, 2012

Centrally located and very-well attended. Great selection of exotic and local animals, terrarium and even some attractions and playgrounds for little ones. Best in warm seasons and in good weather, of course. Great venue to spend some 2-3 hours outdoors with family. As plenty sweet-and-snack-type temptations are offered throughout the place, make sure kids get some proper food prior)

Lots of animals in kiev zoo are kept in a horrible and tiny cages without proper care, especially comparing to the european zoos.
Lots of animals died and lots just dissapeared.. I don't suggest going there! never

the Kiev zoo is great one, if you put into consideration the extreme weather and the rarity of tropical animals

It is poor. It is sad. It is not worth a visit, unless you want to document very bad conditions animals could be relegated to live in. This is an animal prison, Kiev style. It has been marred in controversy for years. Go on safari in Africa, or at least to a San Diego zoo instead!
