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.
