    Зоопарк очень красивый по своей территории, зелень, цветы, клумбы с тюльпанами, лавочки везде, водопад,ну и конечно сами звери и птицы. Вход 20€, это стоит того!

    Really nice place. Online tickets are a bit cheaper and you don't need to stay in line. You can buy a map in the gift shop right at the entrance.
