    We went here on the train from Finland Station and enjoyed the walk on the excellent path through through the forest. We benefited from being with friends who live locally so they explained things to us.

    Calm and nice city with a bid port. Nice places for walk with fountains. A bit far from Saint Petersburg, but if you have one additional day, I advice you to visit. I enjoyed it a lot.

    This was a great experience!!! I did not have a booking, but made one when I got there. I showed up when they opened and there was availability. It’s clear that the animals are well cared for and happy, and the staff were super welcoming and spoke great English! The only thing I couldn’t figure out was how to get into the building, but a kind local helped me out.

    30 minutes drive from St.Petersburg. This beach is beautiful, neat, there are changing rooms. The sand is clean. It is not allowed to do barbecues. On a sunny day it can be very alive. So if you look for quiet time, it is not for you. There are several spots to play volleyball. So, all is rather well organised. My problem was where to park

    The birds have relatively large cages, and the tiny monkeys didn't look crowded. BUT, we only saw one giraffe, two lions in a very small enclosure, a single tiger, lethargically lying around. There was one lonely ice bear, pacing around. The animals looked desolate, distressed and very demotivated. Most of these animals belong in the wild, and not in these dark, damp conditions. I despair.

    The old St. Petersburg Zoo is hardly up to the standard of Modern Zoos. The animals, especially the Tigers and Bears, have very little space for to move, they also lack privacy - normally zoos have a front area open to the public but a back area where the animals can avoid the visitors. Here mostly they can't do that. The level of English is as usual in St. Petersburg quite poor. On the other hand, the aviaries look decent, the petting zoo is nice for kids and there are some attractions such as a carousel which my daighter greatly enjoyed. And of course, it is all quite cheap. I think the Powers that Be should reduce the amount of animals on display to allow them better living conditions.

    Nice and interesting place at the majestic Neva river.
    Great for relaxing and looking over the river to the old city.
