This is probably the best zoo in Poland! Beautiful spaces, huge enclosures, lots of beautiful, exotic animals, which are really well taken care of. I've been there twice already and I'll definitely revisit when I have the chance.

great selection of animals, many food outlets at reasonable prices. However you need to be fit as it goes up and down alot. Only downside is they charge for the toilets

Big enough for few hours walk. There are not so many animals, but very different species. Beautiful landmark. Also there is few cafes with tasty food.
