“Ordinary zoo”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Nothing special about it. You won’t find a lot of exotic animals here. Visit it if you have a lot of time..

“Don't waste your money, don't waste your time”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

This is the worst zoo I've ever seen. Terribly organised territory with a minimum information signs but a huge amount of kiosks with a pop-corn, ice-cream etc, small amount of animals which could be barely seen by 2-6 yo chidren because of too high fences.

“A depressing place to waste some time”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

One of the most disappointing days out I'd "enjoyed" in Moscow, even with a little child it was almost impossible to like. Electric fencing, poor quality of habitat and worse, the ignorant baying humans throwing scraps into the animals without any intervention from staff, it was horrible. Not a fan of zoo's, I do appreciate when they are presented well. From start to finish this was a disaster. It's a trap to drain money from parents, to watch sub-humans take photos of each other getting animals to come to the fence to eat dried bread, and any side exhibit cost extra. Horrible, depressing and should be closed.
