“Peacocks”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Happened to be there after a rainy day and hence the peacocks both regular and albino ones were in the mood for the dance.

“It is not normal place.”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Zoos in Poland and in Europe are beautiful and very intresting. Here it is different. Animals are living in small cages. Climate is not comforttable. When I was there I was thinking " How animals can exist here, it is impossible".

“So-so”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

People feed animals, I feel so sorry about poor animals. The cages and the buildings are from the Soviet times, nothing special.

“Not much but improving”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I visit the Zoo every year while on holiday. I've seen some things improved, f.e the Flamingo Pond and the Giraffe and elephant enclosure, but overall it is still a sad affair. In all those years nothing has been done to improve the conditions of some animals. The bear and monkey cages are still appalling as is the attitude of most of the visitors. I've seen small boys with toy bazooka's 'shooting' animals for fun, people feeding the monkey's all sort of junk even when there is a sign warning not to do so. There is a new playground as well however it was already rusty and dirty. The Zoo is improving albeit at a very slow pace. Visit when you have time left or you are looking to do something with very small kids.
