Prague Zoological Garden is situated near the center of the Czech capital, in a unique rugged landscape on the bank of the Vltava River. It opened in 1931 and during its existence of more than 80 years it has risen to become one of the most prestigious zoos in the world. Today, it is the second most visited tourist destination in the Czech Republic, just after Prague Castle. 4,600 animals and 680 species live in Prague Zoo. You can explore 12 pavilions and 150 exhibits over 58 hectares. The kids will love the Bororo Reserve, chairlift, mini-train, observation tower, paddling pool and Children’s Zoo. The pride of the zoo is its Elephant Valley, home to a sizeable herd of Asian elephants. The Giant Salamander House, where you can see the largest amphibians in the world – the critically endangered Chinese Giant Salamanders – is extraordinary as well; and the African House with an adjacent vast meadow inhabited by herds of antelopes and giraffes is worth your attention, too.

Wow, wow, wow! This zoo is amazing but almost hidden away from tourist parts of Prague. The layout is on levels but the animals are very well cared for. They get taken inside for their food and then brought out again. The Polar Bears were...More

Wear good boots as you will be walking for miles. Some steep paths do not always easy to access if you have mobility issues. Fantastic value with excellent facilities. The wild horses were a highlight fir us. Definitely worth a visit

The zoo covers a very large area and will take a good few hours to get round. Lots of different animals to see, definitely one of the better zoos I have been to in the world.

Yes, the zoo is opeb also in December 9:00 to 16:00. I think it is open also on the Christmas day. You dont have to buy tickets in advance, you just buy them on the spot.

No. You view the zebras in their enclosure via a raised walkway so you will be looking down at them. But there is a exhibit in the zoo where you can pet farm animals.
