"Take a boat to the zoo" Korkeasaaren Eläintarha (Zoo) Tip by sabsi

  An Elk
by sabsi

Helsinki's zoo is the most northern zoo in Europe (so I've heard).

The second fact that makes it special is that it is the only zoo in the world that is located on an island (Korkeasaari). You can go there by boat from Helsinki harbour (approx. 30 mts). The boat ride is included in the ticket.

Hmm apart from that, there's animals. But they all looked rather sad to me!

Address: Korkeasaari island
