Prague Zoo occupies a wooded area on the right bank of the Vltava River. Home to nearly 5,000 animals from almost 700 different species, the park offers you a chance to come face-to-face with giraffes, gorillas, polar bears, tigers, and red pandas. Although the park shelters over 130 species listed as critically endangered, its most important possession may be a herd of rare Przewalski’s horses, native to the steppes of central Asia. Stop by to see the descendants of the last Przewalski's horse caught in the wild, and discover other highlights of this animal sanctuary by taking a guided ride on the zoo's miniature cable car.

Prague Zoo reviews
It was very good for a zoo, and offered a wide variety of species. I would have to complain about the amount of climbing done to see the elephants and so on. The cable car was very fun. more »
One of the most beautiful zoos I visited in Europe. Very large, to see it at your own pace, you need at least half a day. The natural setting of the area is very well used to create areas as close as.... more »
Coming from Bosnia and deciding to visit the zoo last minute was one of the best decisions I ever made. The zoo is massive, there are many paths and many places to see. Seeing so many new animals is a pleasure. If you have extra time i highly suggest you visit this place, but be careful you will need really long time to visit everything. We spent couple of hours there and still didn't manage to see everything. There are also a lot of places you can eat, which gives you an ability to be there all day long. If you have time, visit the zoo you won't regret it.
The best zoo I have ever been. It's my first time to see an actual fruit bat flying around me, very exciting! In this zoo, all animals are raised in appropriate nature environment which let them show off their survival capability. Goat in a huge cliff, Elephant and Giraffe in a 5 times ball park size prairie. Very clean, very close to city side. I'll suggest they should improve their gift shop, probably more diverse merchandises.
