Prague Zoological Garden is situated near the center of the Czech capital, in a unique rugged landscape on the bank of the Vltava River. It opened in 1931 and during its existence of more than 80 years it has risen to become one of the most prestigious zoos in the world. Today, it is the second most visited tourist destination in the Czech Republic, just after Prague Castle. 4,600 animals and 680 species live in Prague Zoo. You can explore 12 pavilions and 150 exhibits over 58 hectares. The kids will love the Bororo Reserve, chairlift, mini-train, observation tower, paddling pool and Children’s Zoo. The pride of the zoo is its Elephant Valley, home to a sizeable herd of Asian elephants. The Giant Salamander House, where you can see the largest amphibians in the world – the critically endangered Chinese Giant Salamanders – is extraordinary as well; and the African House with an adjacent vast meadow inhabited by herds of antelopes and giraffes is worth your attention, too. However, Prague Zoo also has other interesting places: for instance, the Pavilion of Gorillas with the only breeding family of gorillas in the Czech Republic; Chambal, presenting one of the most endangered species of crocodiles in the world – gharials; or the Indonesian Jungle Pavilion, a giant greenhouse presenting a sample of the South Asian rainforest and its inhabitants.

Easily accessible via public transport! Student discount was a nice surprise! This zoo is huge, lots of walking but finitely worth it! Chair lift was fun but quite scary.

Prague zoo was fantastic. Very easy to get to. Excellent value for money. We kept finding ourselves saying "yes" to requests like horse rides as they were very reasonable. There was even a swimming pool where kids stripped down to underwear and splashed away! Can't...More

No. You view the zebras in their enclosure via a raised walkway so you will be looking down at them. But there is a exhibit in the zoo where you can pet farm animals.

Taxis are a bit of a question mark in Prague. AAA-taxi.cz gives taxi fair estimations. They are one of the registered taxi companies. There is also Uber in Prague.
