“Well worth a visit, but could do with some modernisation.”
Review of Kaliningrad Zoo

Kaliningrad Zoo
Ranked #12 of 217 things to do in Kaliningrad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 14, 2014

All of the animals we saw appeared very well cared for, having said that some of the enclosures were old fashioned, it was like going to a zoo in the 1960's. The primates are homed in lovely new enclosures with plenty of room to exercise but other animals such as the big cats and an elephant were in much smaller enclosures. There is old bear pit at the entrance of the zoo that now houses racoons, one of the larger cages in the Zoo has a sign saying that it is a bear enclosure built with donations from the the readers of the Sunday Times, but thee were no bears just South American Tapirs. There are plenty of places to grab a snack in the Zoo and a myriad of souvenir sellers. If you want to avoid the crowds, it can a popular destination, go when it opens at 09:00 and you should have the place to yourself.

Took my daughter to the zoo. It was okay. The animals a scarce. Some of them are kept in poor conditions. The hippo for example was in this small pool of water where it could barely turn around. It smelled from far away in part because of the hippo and in part because people trying to feed the animal would throw items into the water that the hippo wouldn't eat. Okay to kill a couple of hours, but nothing to write home about.
