Love this zoo. It is gradually improving. Lots of new modern pavillons. Lots of playgrounds for kids. Restarant/canteen style/. Highly reccomended!

Ostrava ZOO is imho one of the greatest ZOOs in Czech republic. Wide range of species, lot of activities for children and beautiful wood area will make your day an experience. If you crave for more peaceful walk, visit the ZOO during the week ;)
