  • Most of the enclosures were very small. Furthermore, there was only 1 real bathroom, the rest were trucks with a capacity of 2 people. 800 rubles was far too much to pay for such a small zoo

  • I had more expectations on this Zoo. There are not many species in this area. I saw a lot of ducks there, it looks like it is more a bird Park. An elephant is hidden in a dedicated building. There...

  • Interesting place a zoo in city! But i guess visit here in summer is not good idea. Animals and you too might be tired with the heat. The ticket price is 800 ruble for one person. But i think its kinda expensive then i could enjoy this place. If you are traveler and have lots of days then you can visit here just for relax. That's all
  • Nice experience, we were travelling to Moscow and my little one really enjoyed meeting the animals. The zoo has 2 sections and lots of animal species, you will need to walk a lot to cover the whole park
