  • Amazing experience! - Prague

We have read a lot of great reviews on this attraction and we have been told that this zoo is already 80 years old, but just after the visit of the Prague Zoo during the Easter holidays of 2011 we truly understood what a great place it is! You could spend one entire day there (I spent there 7 hours and even skipped some parts of it!) - the zoo size is amazing, everything is so well-organized (there have been some reconstructions for relocating some of the big animals but this doesn't affect so much the overall impression), there are so many animals and attractions plus places to rest for a while and eat and/or have a coffee/beer and I could say for sure is that it is a must-see attraction! The easiest way to get there is to catch the C line of the Prague Metro and at the metro station Nazdravi Holesovice to take a bus 112 that will drive you directly to the zoo. The admission fee is 150 Kc per adult (around 5.50 - 6.00 EUR) and 100 Kc (around 4 EUR) for children over 3 years (it's free for children under 3 years), retired people and students, there are also special fares for families (2 adults and 2 children) and groups above 10 people. Among the most spectacular attractions within the zoo is the Indonesian jungle pavilion with an area of 1,950 m2 that holds 160 animal (check the primates - orangutans, gibbons, macaques, leaf monkeys), Komodo dragons, turtles, fish and bird species as well as 1,600 specimens of live plants coming from Southeast Asia. Don't miss also the gorilla pavilion where there is a relatively recently born small gorilla. I would recommend you to visit this zoo during your visit to Prague, you will not regret it for sure!

Address: U Trojského zámku 3/120, 171 00 Praha 7
Directions: Go to metro station Nadrazi Holesovice (Metro Line C) and get the bus 112 that will drive you directly to the zoo
