It is the first good state zoo that I have visited in Ukraine. I'm very excited because all animals are clean, have enough space, enough food, are calm and chilling out, no bad smell at all. That was realy a nice place to enjoy animals....More

Visited in Winter Odessa and Kiev zoo. Kiev was good, Odessa poor and this zoo far worse. Animals do not look great and the whole zoo is very tired. It would be better in spring/summer however it is not "Ukraines best zoo" as advertised
