On entering the place looked quite small, but surprised at size of area covered. As other reviewers have stated some animals seemed to lack space, but new polar bear enclosure was excellent. Several cafes about but not too good a standard

I like the new place for polar bears. The young bear likes swimming and people' attention. Easy and interesting to watch him. Staff at the gate is not friendly, soviet working style. And the road system is quite confusing. Bike are not welcomed, not inside...More

In my opinion its one of the best zoo's in europe. Because of the winter I couldnt see some animals but still it was awesome. It has very large area and different selection of animals. It worth every cents.

This zoo was old, and alot of it's animals had wounds and lived in poor dirty conditions. The zoo in itself is not nice at all, it's just an open field with no gardening, cafes etc. Would not recommend this one.
