Gdańsk Zoo

  ul. Karwieńska 3, Gdańsk (Oliwa) ,   Oliwa          (+48) 58 552 00 41     10 Jul 2023
Set in the forests of Oliwa, visit one of Poland's best zoos, and at a fraction of the price of most western zoos. On show are a host of wild animals with the kids' favourites being the elephants, hippos and chimpanzees. Their most recent addition is a Sand Cat. The zoo has invested a lot in recent years in updating the animals' accommodation with the monkeys and zebras having benefited in recent years from investment in new spacious enclosures while giraffes and, most recently, lions have been added in new purpose-built enclosures. On a pleasant day, it is quite possible to spend most of the day here as the park makes for a pleasant and quite exhausting walk, a train tour of the whole park (in summer) and a central food area with some small rides for the kids (not in winter). There is also stuff for the grown-ups with a really challenging high ropes course with another on offer for the kids. The grounds offer 6 gastronomic points (Café Zoo, a food truck, Restauracja Leśny Młyn, Lody Eskimo), and the nearby Oliwa district also has a number of excellent food and drink options, including the city’s best pizzas at Pizzeria Margherita and more upmarket dining at Pałac Opatów (English: Abbot’s Palace) in Oliwa Park. Both of these places are in the shadow of the beautiful Oliwa Cathedral. Bus 179 runs from the Oliwa Pętla stop all the way to the front gate.
