Create an itinerary including Prague Zoo
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. Put Prague Zoo on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Prague holiday planner.

  • One of the best zoo's that I have visited. The grounds are huge and you need a full day to explore everything. Lots of animals kept indoors during the colder months but they all had plenty of space...

  • Lots to see. Basically had the park to ourselves. Very cheap entry and good and tasty food. All animals seemed well looked after.

  • A zoo that is worth visiting. You can spend a whole day here and not get bored and the entrance is very cheap compared to what it offers. Hundreds of species of animals and birds. The layout of the park is superlative, from the pens to the landscaping, everything is well thought out. Congratulations for your investment! Find toilets very often and jukeboxes with drinks, coffee and snacks + restaurants. It is very easy to reach from the center with tram 17 and then bus 112.
  • The Prague Zoo was a fantastic experience for our family. The exhibits were beautifully constructed and maintained, there were conveniently located and clean toilets, and there were several areas for children to play in. Nearly all of the signs included English translations, so we had no trouble even though we are still learning Czech. A number of restaurants dotted the park, offering a wide selection of food and refreshments (and for very reasonable prices). The indoor exhibits allowed us to stay relatively dry during a brief rain shower while still enjoying the park. I highly recommend this zoo and will definitely be returning in the future!
