Things to do in Prague
Safety in Prague
For nature and animals lovers, Prague Zoo is the perfect place to visit. The zoo is open all year round and is located in the picturesque environment of the Troja Basin. Its diverse terrain makes it possible to walk through both shady groves and open, grassy plains. There are an ever-growing number of exhibition lots that blend with the natural landscape. To make your trip to the zoo more pleasant, a popular series of informative feedings and training exercises have been prepared for weekends, along with many other interesting programmes. There is also a small chair lift that will, no doubt, be entertaining for children. We must not forget to mention that the zoo has been renovated since the floods of 2002.
Among the most notable species found at the Prague Zoo are: giant turtles, Chinese alligators, giant iguanas, cassowaries, red pandas, brown hyenas, cheetahs, Amur leopards, Siberian tigers, Sumatran tigers, aardvarks, white rhinoceros, Przewalski's horses, kiangs, bongo antelope and addax, dark gorals, ruffled lemurs, orangutans and Western gorillas. The zoo was conceived on the idea that the animals should not be placed in cages and is focused on creating a natural environment for each animal. They are separated from visitors by glass, moats or fences.
About half a million people visit the zoo each year.
Open: daily March 9am-5pm; April, May, September and October 9am-6pm; June, July and August 9am-7pm; November, December, January and February 9am-4pm.
Getting there: take a bus no. 112 from the underground station of Nádraží Holešovice (line C); get off at Zoologická zahrada, last stop.
Address: U Trojskeho zamku 3/120, Prague 7. Webiste: click here.
