“Gardens Nice but Zoo Poor”
Review of Nikolaev Zoo

Nikolaev Zoo
Ranked #1 of 43 things to do in Mykolayiv
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 31, 2014

Having one of the best zoos in the world in my home town makes it difficult to say too much. Nice grounds and if you have never been to a zoo then it is ok. Good to keep children amused.

Not bad at all, you can spend half a day with your family walking among different animals but still you can find something you should see next time. However some reconstruction for the Zoo is more than welcome.

Great place to visit and relax for awhile while looking at the zoo. Well looked after grounds and the animals looked cared for.

This zoo has some wonderful and a beautiful park like grounds. An easy and enjoyable day. A large variety of animals are present and well maintained.
While we could all hope for animals living in their natural habitat, this zoo presents the species well and is one of the best I have seen in Eastern Europe.
Not to be compared with other zoos in the Americas.
It is a refreshing stop in a bustling city and highly unexpected for its quality and grounds.

A zoo that is more that 100 years old. They have a web-page where you can read the story of the zoo. Plenty of nice alleys, tree- and stone-figures. One of the best places to make open-air photo-sessions in Nikolaev.
