Prague Zoo

Description

Prague Zoo is a zoo in Prague, Czech Republic. It was opened in 1931 with the goal to "advance the study of zoology, protect wildlife, and educate the public" in the district of Troja in the north of Prague. The zoo occupies 45 hectares (111 acres) and houses about 4,400 animals that represent 670 species from all around the world. Prague Zoological Garden has contributed significantly to saving the Przewalski horse. For many years it was the biggest breeder of the species in the world. In 2007 Forbes Traveler Magazine listed Prague ZOO among the world's best zoos.

With child has to be half and half, ie a schedule that interests everyone. So let an entire day to the zoo. A subway and a bus, super clean and comfortable and you will spend a special day with the family. The entry can be paid by credit card, but inside, everything is about money. If you change, you lose. Fazça all the way to the zoo, including rise lift is excellent and only costs 20 cents of their money. From the top, can you make beautiful photos of the city and you can see the castle, and a couple of hours strolling bordering the river. It's worth. (When we visited in September, two gorilla babies were born)
