On entering the place looked quite small, but surprised at size of area covered. As other reviewers have stated some animals seemed to lack space, but new polar bear enclosure was excellent. Several cafes about but not too good a standard

In my opinion its one of the best zoo's in europe. Because of the winter I couldnt see some animals but still it was awesome. It has very large area and different selection of animals. It worth every cents.

This zoo was old, and alot of it's animals had wounds and lived in poor dirty conditions. The zoo in itself is not nice at all, it's just an open field with no gardening, cafes etc. Would not recommend this one.

Comparably small zoo, but with some interesting animals like Armadillo or Rhinocero. Worth to visit.
