Gdańsk Zoo

  ul. Karwieńska 3, Gdańsk (Oliwa) ,   Oliwa          (+48) 58 552 00 41     19 Dec 2023

Set in the forests of Gdańsk's leafy Oliwa district, 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, and the zoo has invested a lot in updating many of the animals' accommodation in recent years. Open year-round, it is quite possible to spend most of the day here as the 125ha park makes for a pleasant and quite exhausting walk, and there are additional attractions, including a train tour of the whole park (closed in winter) and a petting zoo.

There is also stuff for the grown-ups with a really challenging high ropes course, and another on offer for the kids. The grounds offer 6 gastronomic points (2 in winter), 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.
Average visiting time: 3.5hrs.
