Prague Zoo, Prague

4.7
#1 of 243 in Outdoors in Czech Republic
Prague Zoo occupies a wooded area on the right bank of the Vltava River. Home to nearly 5,000 animals from almost 700 different species, the park offers you a chance to come face-to-face with giraffes, gorillas, polar bears, tigers, and red pandas. Although the park shelters over 130 species listed as critically endangered, its most important possession may be a herd of rare Przewalski’s horses, native to the steppes of central Asia. Stop by to see the descendants of the last Przewalski's horse caught in the wild, and discover other highlights of this animal sanctuary by taking a guided ride on the zoo's miniature cable car.

  • Were in the Zoo in March 2018 year, walked for a couple of hours, but stayed around 6:00 and the time flew by unnoticed! A lot of animals in the Zoo, and most that I liked that for each of them a huge territory and created (or as close as possible) the natural conditions Wednesday. There are open, and there are private pavilions. Closed remembered most Jungle Pavilion: you like on a carpet plane transported into another world. and here you have already deposited the shakes krasnopopye Macaque! Walk into the next Pavilion and see huge turtles, Goannas! And in the Pavilion with giraffes always crowded: and I wonder how kids and adults watching these amazing long-necked animals! We had a challenge: to see the elephants, and for that, as it turns out you need to go through nearly the whole Zoo! Polar bears, penguins, seals, zebras, cheetahs, Tigers, Meerkats, antelopes, Przewalski's horse, Lions, elephants, gorillas, storks, Kangaroo, EMU ... and many many more! I advise to visit Prague Zoo will be very interesting for both children and adults!

  • Visiting Prague zoo was my favourite experience during my time in Prague. The animals have very large enclosures and seem very well looked after. The ticket prices are cheap too - I got a student tick...  more »
  • Very impressed and deserves special attention. All animals active enclosures clean, open territory in animals is awesome, but what spectacular panoramas of the city unfold with the Zoo-don't pass! With no children, we do not know how we managed to convince our men visit the Zoo, but all are delighted with it. I have so many animals and gladly posed for

  • Brilliant. Great facilities. First time there and I loved it very much. I didn't know what to expect but really glad I went. Huge park on the top of a hill overlooking Prague. Large variety of animals in big enclosures. Many newborn animals that you were able to see. Exceptionally clean park - no rubbish anywhere. Very reasonably priced tickets for what was on offer. Definitely recommend!
  • Went Easter weekend, was a little busy. Very clean and decent sized zoo. Had great exhibits, animals from all over the world. Takes credit card and the entrance cash only at most food stands. Some animals were not out but most were out or available to see indoors.
  • One of the best zoos in Europe. Very good for small children and toddlers. Wonderful penguin and arctic pool. House animal zoo is somewhere where you can touch the animals. There's also a chair road up the hill (be cautious while the chair is good for 1 adults only when the safety belt is used, better put children in a separate chair when old enough). Plan at least half a day to spend there.
  • Amazing huge zoo! The variety and amount of animals is incredible. Has nice restaurants inside it. You can walk there for four hours and not visit all the animals. The ticket had a reasonable price and there are plenty of places to sit and rest.
  • Its the best Zoo I know. You can be there the whole day and still dont see and do everything. Great job what they did
