I was very happy and after other reviews pleasantly surprised at how nice and humane this Zoo was. We are strong animal lovers and we live in San Diego which is home to one of the best Zoos on the planet. We visited the Moscow Zoo in February and it was amazing to see all the animals enjoying the winter weather. There were 3 baby polar bears playing in the icy water and all the cats had their winter coats on. The white bangle tiger was absolutely stunning. I can't believe how many animals had babies. All the animals seemed well fed and happy. I did not see any people feeding animals or mistreating animals in any way. It was fun watching the zoo employees hand feeding the sloths. All of the food stands were closed in the winter so if you want to eat I'd recommend bringing your own snacks.

The Zoo is really bad, starting with the security guard that offers to let you in for half the regular fee paid directly to him (we certaintly declined) and finishing with poor conditions most of the animals have to live there. Was really disappointed.

It's very bad organized. There are pavilions in which you have to pay additional money to get in.
There are amusements that distract children from seeing animals.
From my point of view, the best zoo in Europe is Berlin's zoo.

Is a big zoo but you can only enjoy in summer cause in winter you will freeze for sure. They have a good number of animals attractions and places to eat and make a stop. Personally is a good place to go once and see..
