They have a respectable collection of different animals from all over Russia and a few ones from Africa. Worth to have a look and spend the whole day there with your family or your better half.

The Zoo is rather old and would be even better organized in a case of proper financial support. Anyway, there are a number of animals and there are some interesting place to see, for sure.

Of advantages - a large collection of animals over a large area. Of the shortcomings - needs renovation, both the animal rooms, and walking paths. Some species (like tigers, wolves) are still kept in cages. In my opinion, having such a large territory, the administration...More

We visited that Zoo in winter. There were no public, no footpaths because a lot of snow. Animals looked rather unhappy. Poor information about location of cages.
