Owner description: Prague Zoological Garden is situated near the center of the Czech capital, in a unique rugged landscape on the bank of the Vltava River. It opened in 1931 and during its existence of more than 80 years it has risen to become one of the most prestigious zoos in the world. Today, it is the second most visited tourist destination in the Czech Republic, just after Prague Castle. 4,600 animals and 680 species live in Prague Zoo. You can explore 12 pavilions and 150 exhibits over 58 hectares. The kids will love the Bororo Reserve, chairlift, mini-train, observation tower, paddling pool and Children’s Zoo. The pride of the zoo is its Elephant Valley, home to a sizeable herd of Asian elephants. The Giant Salamander House, where you can see the largest amphibians in the world – the critically endangered Chinese Giant Salamanders – is extraordinary as well; and the African House with an adjacent vast meadow inhabited by herds of antelopes and giraffes is worth your attention, too.

This was an amazing experience! The animals had a lot of space and it was easy to see they were relaxed and happy. Only experienced some (felines) who were pacing next to the fence. But I know they are often notoriously hard to keep in a zoo. We used 4-5 hours there but could easily have spend another 2-3 more. Only reason why I can only give 4 stars is the lack of English descriptions next to the animals.

My husband and I decided to go following recommendations. We were really impressed by how many animals they have and how much there is to see. They even have a chair lift which you can ride to get to another part of the zoo for a very small fee. Lots of cafes and restaurants for refreshment breaks which was needed as a lot of ground to cover. Certainly a full day's entertainment and so very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit and for all ages!

After reading the many great reviews, My husband and I visited this zoo on our last day in Prague. It was definitely NOT a let down! A huge zoo with a vast variety of animals from all over the world. It’s very clean with trash cans all throughout.There are bathrooms located throughout the zoo, which are relatively clean. Many different places to get some food, drinks or sweets. There is also the cable chair ride from which you can see the breathtaking view of Prague. We were there for about 6 hours and were unable to see it all. I would definitely recommend this place, especially if you have you d children. They would LOVE it! I personally video called my children back home to show them the different animals!!

This zoo is a must if you are traveling with young children. It is clean, well maintained, very reasonably priced, and there are plenty of amenities throughout the zoo: toilets, vending machines, restaurants, snack stalls, souvenir shops, playgrounds. Especially loved the way different kind of playgrounds can be found in almost every area. Food and snacks sold were tasty as well. Signs and descriptions are sufficient. Excellent variety of animals. There are enough benches and resting areas around.
If you come on Monday there is a discount for kids.
