It is old zoo and could have been great place, but many cages are very-very dirty. No design, no style. There are some areas that are kept better and renovated, but mostly it provokes a huge pity for animals that are kept there.

Although I visited on a wet March morning, I still preferred this zoo over Odessa, Kiev & Mykoliav. Normally at the end of Winter the animals look like they are dying but here the animals all look in good condition.

One of the best zoo in the world. In the downtown, close to the subway stations it is the good idea to see animals and relax especially in the summer time. Morning us the best time.

Good stuff is working there, animals don't have that "bother movements", so there is an indicator that they are in good care and mood
