Do not visit here. I have never felt sad in a zoo before, but if you love animals at all this is NOT the place for you. The poor polar bears were in the tiniest enclosure, they looked depressed.
The tigers were walking around in circles clearly bored and distressed. Every animal looked sad and bored. I have never been to a zoo like this. While we were there, the seals had about a meter wide/deep of water, the entire enclosure was dry. It was heartbreaking to see.
There are no staff members around the zoo either in our 2 hours of walking around, not one staff member to be seen. Every enclosure was dirty and not looked after, this place should be shut down, the poor animals deserve better.
STAY AWAY

First of all it will probably one of the saddest and depressing zoo I have ever been too. I feel like the animals are just about kept alive for money. The pens are very boring nothing for the animals to do. I have never wanted to leave a zoo before seeing all the animals but this one I just very sad. Was probably only there for 2 hours as the zoo is so big but did not see 1 staff member around. Don’t go if you think the animals are well kept. Should really have an investigation into the place. Seeing the polar bear would make a grown man tear up

What a fabulous zoo. So many beautiful animals and they have so much space to roam. Lovely enclosures and the animals are very well cared for.

There are plenty of food & drink stops. Clean toilet facilities and loads of play equipment for children.

It is a beautiful day out just to stroll amoungst the trees and beautiful greenery and very cheap to go and see the animals.

It is an easy walk over the bridge from the Old Town and well worth a visit.

Lots off animals but quite small living quarters for them. Clean and nice to see everything so close witch was possible because off small spaces...but still would wish for more room to animals even double the space you still would be close but nicer for animals.

We visited the zoo today-10zlt each which was quite a bargain so we weren't so surprised that we didn't get a map or any information on the way in. Huge place and lots of animals to see-unless of course you go when we did and they are all indoors-70% of which you can't see into-no rhinos,no lion,no polar bears..... The list goes on. Information about the animals not in English. Old and run down houses/cages. The monkey house needed a good clean along with the hippos that you couldn't see through the glass tank. Lots of monkeys,maybe baboons, outside running up and down-the liveliest we saw of any of the animals but one tiny one with no fur and skeleton thin stands out. Absolutely awful. The jaguar was pacing round in circles in it's tatty small cage with a bunch of sticks,round and round and round-a clear sign of distress. Monkeys just sat looking sad,no interaction or movement from them. A lot of animals on their own rather than having a mate or family with them. After walking round for a good hour we found a place for food-not really-just cakes and drinks. A number of eateries were passed with nothing open-including the gift shop. Toilets absolutely disgusting in the reptile house,dirty and smelly with broken locks and whilst trying to choose the better one of the two I walked into one with a window right next to it-call me a prude but that doesn't seem quite right to me. I will be looking into how to complain about the sorry state of the monkeys I saw-that's how bad it was-I will upload the photo of it to prove my point. Seriously if you love animals then don't go here-it's heartbreaking.

Not Europe's most impressive zoo, but a place with a lot of History. Its founder Jan Żabiński was a zoo pioneer in Warsaw and a zoologist. He was the director of the renowned Warsaw Zoo before and during World War II. Jan and his wife Antonina and their son Ryszard used their personal villa and the zoo itself to shelter hundreds of displaced Jews. Additionally, Jan fought during the Warsaw Uprising, was subsequently injured and became a prisoner of war. They were recognized by Yad Vashem as Righteous Among the Nations for their heroic rescue of Jews during the Holocaust in Poland. A movie was made about the Żabiński couple, The Zookeeper’s Wife, released on March 31, 2017, with Jessica Chastain portraying Antonina and Johan Heldenbergh cast as Jan. Today’s zoo is still at the same location.

My sister and I were very eager to visit the zoo after reading the fabulous book "The Zookeeper's Wife". We followed the directions given on the site - Metro and then tram to Praski Park. It was a lovely ride across the Wisla, and very easy to find. We were initially disappointed, as no one understood that two crazy American ladies were searching for the zookeeper's house! We searched high and low to no avail, but loved the animal displays. The primates and monkeys were especially entertaining. After walking the park, and enjoying a snack of delicious potato pancakes we were heading toward the exit, when low and behold I spied the house! It was right where we started - behind the flamingo exhibit. So if like my sister and I - you are interested in finding it - when you enter you will see the flamingos to the right. Facing the exhibit - scoot around the corner to the left (facing) and the house sits right behind the exhibit:)

The Warsaw Zoo is extensive, well laid out, with beautiful grounds and many exotic animals to enjoy as a family. But if, like us, you are interested in World War II history, you must visit the home of the zookeepers, the home of the Zabinski family, tucked away on the zoo grounds. They were responsible for sheltering Jewish refugees from the Warsaw ghetto in their home during the war and moving them with the help of others aiding the plight of Jews to safety. A remarkable story of courage and compassion and resolve and the home features the basement which provided sanctuary - in one case for 3 years - to persons who otherwise would have likely perished. You need to visit with a guide so be sure to call in advance to secure a reservation for your visit.

If you didn't RSVP (email or call the Villa prior to your trip), you still might be in luck. If you email, usually someone is good about getting back to you within 1-2 days.

Our experience was that we didn't know about the reservation requirement, so we panicked the night before we went to the zoo, emailed the Villa, and then decided to go to the zoo as planned the next day. When we got to the zoo we hadn't gotten a reply via email, and the ticket office told us there was nothing they could do, and that we had to register. My wife (she's great) was persistent and so we walked to the Żabińskis' Villa (which is in the zoo near the kangaroos) right away and luckily the front door was open. We mulled around the entrance a little while until we saw someone who told us the next tour would be all 11:00. So, thankfully we hadn't missed it. We made sure to tip the tour guide. Please make sure you do as well. The tour isn't more than 10 minutes, but if you're interested in this part of history, it's a must. From all that we could tell, this is still someone's living quarters, as there was a man having breakfast while had our tour.

Don't forget that the Żabińskis' Villa can only be visited with a guide. Please try to reserve by phone 603059758 or by email at villa@zoo.waw.pl
