Moscow zoo is nice to visit on a cloudy day. It is something different than the beautiful city, but for small children it is lots of fun. It is a big zoo so take your time. Children till 7years have free entrance.

This zoo actually brought tears to my eyes. The animals are not well taken care of and look miserable. Not supporting this place. Avoid.

The exposition there is very chaotic, half of the zoo is closed but the price is usual. It’s not beatiful to walk ther because building is almost everywhere.

It's a good zoo and nice place to visit alone or with your kids, it's not expensive at all. You can enjoy the nice view of the sky with the open zoo along a lot of animals and species.

Moscow Zoo is something very special. If you are tired of seeing "точечная застройка " and not looking for supermarket "в шаговой доступности" this is the place to be. Moscow has successfully invested in collection of different creatures, that make you happy once you step...More

A very big place full of exotic animals. Make sure you have at least 3 hours to spend at the zoo because there's really A LOT to see and wonder. We didn't have too much time before the closing so we didn't get to see...More

Was pleasantly surprised by the amount on offer at The Moscow Zoo. There was a wide variety of animals, most of which seemed well cared for. An English speaking staff member at the zoo museum was very informative and was genuinely passionate about her work.

The neighborhood is divided into two major halves by
Krasnaya Presnya street: the southern part highlights
Moscow city – businesses contained in skyscrapers
along with the White House - where the Russian
government works. The north is a bit more relaxed and
casual, visitors here will find the Moscow zoo,
National Centre for Contemporary Arts and a number of
fine restaurants. The beautiful neo-gothic Cathedral
