Wrocław Zoo

Wrocław Zoo
Cross the picturesque Zwierzyniecki Bridge and you find yourself immediately alongside the cagey enclosure of the Wrocław Zoological Gardens. A product of the city’s dynamic development in the late 19th century, Wrocław’s zoo dates back to 1865 and became the oldest in the country when Poland inherited it after World War II. Suffering severe wartime damage, many of the zoo’s elegant historic buildings were reconstructed and can be found in the southern part of the park; also don't miss the splendid Soviet-era neon sign at the entrance. Brand-new to the zoo is the impressive African aquarium complex - or 'Afrykarium' - three levels of exhibits focussed on the diverse water environments of Africa, including hippos, sharks, manatees, crocodiles, penguins (in Africa? Who knew?) and more. With over 6000 critters of some 900 different species, the zoo is one of Wrocław’s most visited attractions and also provides foreigners with an opportunity to pick up a few phrases from one of the only Polish-speaking macaws in the world (making good money on the side as a voice talent for Polish dub-overs of Disney flicks).

Admission 30/20zł. A family ticket (valid for up to 2 adults, 3 kids) is also available for 85zł (Mon 50zł). [Note that ticket prices may change in April.]
