Having regularly visited great zoo's like San Diego, Frankfurt, Zurich etc, I was surprised to find a smaller, but decent zoo in Athens.
Besides having a great collection of birds and other specials (white tigers, jaguars, bird of prey show or educational dolphin show for kids), it has a good space for some species, ie savannah (zebras, oryx, giraffes etc) or bears and shimpanzees.
Some predators and birds clearly lack space, but I've experienced much worse in many of Europe's zoos.
The staff at ticketing and cafeteria is quite apathic unfortunately.
Overall, a good place to go with children and we go there mostly on cooler days.
Do avoid in very hot weather, as hardly any shade around and if you go at least 3x a year, simply buy the annual ticket.
