We and our animals are glad to see our friends. We try to make each visit into a true festive event. On this joyful day we have prepared a vestive program for our guests. It will start at 11.30 at the Big Pond.  

The program of the event:

  • Zoo quest;
  • Merry games with clown;
  • Feeding of bears and monkeys.

True printanier excitement has arisen among our inhabitants. There air is singing from multi-voiced quoir in which the first singers are blue-tits, chaffinches and starlings.This polyphony consists of many feathered vocalists - from blue-tit to brown willow warbler. Nearly all animals have been taken to outdoor enclosures where they rejoice the warm sunny weather. In enclosures of monkeys, Himalayan bears, South-American peccaries, moufflons, bisons and other animals you may watch the playful youngsters capering under supervision of their parents. Majestic European white pelicans and subtle flamingoes make a gorgeous glimpse. A true decoration of the Zoo collection is the cheetah Byron, recently given to the Zoo as a present.

The tender sun shines from the water surface of ponds. The heady air of spring is magnificent. Blloming lilac and fruit trees create festive atmosphere. As usual, one can take a bite and have som rest in cosy nooks of the Zoo. 

Come and be our guests. Do not be late to see the spring in the Zoo!
