Had a lovely day here. Sun shone and was busy. Lots to see and a play area for young kids. Think it was roughly £7.00 in for the 3 of us. Animals seemed content and well fed not scrawny and ready to pop their clogs....More

Very nice Zoo with a big variety of animals. The only down fall was that all the information was in polish so we couldn't understand but would still recommend taking a trip there as it's a nice place to spend a few hours!

you need to go to Krakow Football Stadium about a 15 min walk from the centre or catch a bus/tram there and there's a bus will take you directly to the zoo
