Create an itinerary including Prague Zoo
Prague Zoo occupies a wooded area on the right bank of the Vltava River. Home to nearly 5,000 animals from almost 700 different species, the park offers you a chance to come face-to-face with giraffes, gorillas, polar bears, tigers, and red pandas. Although the park shelters over 130 species listed as critically endangered, its most important possession may be a herd of rare Przewalski’s horses, native to the steppes of central Asia. Stop by to see the descendants of the last Przewalski's horse caught in the wild, and discover other highlights of this animal sanctuary by taking a guided ride on the zoo's miniature cable car. Put Prague Zoo on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Prague holiday planner.

  • This zoo was huge. I had no idea how large it was. Bring your best walking shoes and be prepared to spend the whole day there. Unfortunately, with how large it is, it's layout is poorly designed...

  • The Prague Zoo was a fantastic experience for our family. The exhibits were beautifully constructed and maintained, there were conveniently located and clean toilets, and there were several areas for children to play in. Nearly all of the signs included English translations, so we had no trouble even though we are still learning Czech. A number of restaurants dotted the park, offering a wide selection of food and refreshments (and for very reasonable prices). The indoor exhibits allowed us to stay relatively dry during a brief rain shower while still enjoying the park. I highly recommend this zoo and will definitely be returning in the future!
  • It happened to be a rainy day so I guess lots of animals were hiding. The setting is pleasant even if loads of uphill and the cable car wasn't working. There are still indoor pavilions we could enjoy and there are cages you can enter with the birds!! Food was great, facilities are clean, all in all it was good but maybe it's better to visit on a sunny day.
