I think this is a great idea, having a small branch of the zoo in the centre of town where people can see reptiles, arachnids, fish and insects for a very modest price. We were planning a visit to to the main zoo anyway but since our hotel was right by Akva Tera we couldn't resist popping in for a... More

We had a quick stop in Pilsen on the way to Prague. The kids love all zoos, so we came here. The indoor exhibits were stinky and a little sad, but the outside exhibits were very nice. Great up close view of lions and tigers, interesting small animals and monkeys.

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. (It's 10-15 minute walk, using short-cut paths through the park). The zoo is very good,... More
