The Ostrava zoo is a quiet oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. And while seeing animals like lions and leopards confined to small cages with concrete floors still breaks my heart, most of the animal enclosures are quite good.

Lovely zoo, with animals that are clearly well cared for. Nice break from the tourists and easy to get there on the bus. Clouded leopards were amazing. Also, you can just get a beer and walk around with it. That is pretty neat. First time...More

Love this zoo. It is gradually improving. Lots of new modern pavillons. Lots of playgrounds for kids. Restarant/canteen style/. Highly reccomended!
