It's No 1 definitely for families with children. A lot of fun, interaction with animals, places to play and have a snack. Everything planned and arranged. Sure, the famous gorilla attracts a lot of attention and I can confirm he is truly amazing. We could...More

Even in winter this zoo, which still has many different animal species, is worth a visit. Zoo is easy accessible from the city, even for tourists. Tickets are reasonably priced.
