Voted the fourth best zoo in the world in 2015, Zoo Praha is a really cool zoo. Following the floods of 2002 (in which there was an unfortunate loss of animal life that was broadcast round the world) many improvements to infrastructure and the animal’s homes have been made. Big ones, like elephants, lions and tigers can be spotted, but don’t miss the gorillas, penguins, kangaroos, giraffes, parrots, wolves and hyenas. Recent additions have included an Indonesian Jungle and pavilion for a group of rare Indian crocodiles. Additional highlights include the Gorilla Pavilion and African Jungle. Definitely the place to come to if you have little ones in tow – there’s an excellent petting zoo and kids play area. A train ride through the zoo, a chair lift ride above the zoo or wagon-like vehicles for the kids are available for tired tootsies. Shaded, well-laid out paths make this a good visit, even on warm days.

The zoo opened in 1931 and today spreads over 60 hectares and is home to nearly 5,000 animals. Another special aspect of Zoo Praha is their conservation efforts. The facility was instrumental in preventing the extinction of Przewalski horses in the 60s and has assisted with the reintroduction of a variety of bird species across Central Europe as well as gorilla conversation in Central Africa and the gharial crocodile in India. Concession stands are inside and there’s a restaurant near the entrance. Take bus 112 from metro station Nádraží Holešovice.
