Small aquarium in the city center. A great variety of spiders and insects, fish and some snakes and lizards. Definitely worth the visit with children. There is a 50% discount if someone has already visit Pilsen Zoo.

Plzen is definitely worth visiting. And when you have already enjoyed the city centre and all the colourful neat buildings that are scattered everywhere it is a must to stop at the Plaza Mall to try second floor's ice-cream and then continue to the zoo....More
