A cozy, strange-looking terrarium with few parrots, bunnies you can touch, two monkeys and a sad armadillo. Friendly staff and you are torn in the between: you like seeing the animals up close but feel bad for the snapping turtle and the lonely piranha.

Very nice cozy little zoo in Daugavpils. It also has terrarium. There are turtles, fishes, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, snakes, iguanas, lizzards, monkeys, bats, meerkats and ants. Very interesting to watch them all. Especially we enjoyed ants carrying leaves into their house over our heads....More

Latgale Zoo surpised me a big time. From outside the building in itself looks very unattractive but inside carries a beautifull jungle filled with life - fishes, rabbits, ants, parrots, suricates, snakes, bats etc.

Surprisingly nice little Zoo in Daugavpils city. Compact, but exciting - once you get in it is really interesting to what's done by enthusiasts there. Of course, almost free of charge. Put car outside on the street easily. Be aware there is no lunch options...More

Definitely worthwhile a visit. The kids loved it so much. At only €0.60 you can't go wrong. The ants are something else.

Small zoo but nice and interesting for small children. Only small animals like reptiles, fish, some birds and monkeys. The price is very low. Worth visiting if you are in Daugavpils.

Lovely little zoo, that has various snakes, fish, birds and reptiles. The small exhibition is indoors, so good to visit on every season. I did not expect much, but was really surprised in the end. You can see the animals really close and the employees...More

Animals trapped in the worst conditions possible, plants are all fake, not sure if all the animals are alive... If you're afraid that animals might crawl out of the cage, they actually might, because for many, there is nothing to stop them from doing that!

It is very small zoo, but it worth your time to visit (+very small entry fee, € 0,6 for adults and € 0,3 for students). Interesting interior, possibility to touch some of animals (with staff permission). I don't know any other so cozy zoo like...More
