ZOO in Zlin is a beautiful woodland with the largest collection of birds in Czech Republic. The very charming atmosphere is created primarily by a large castle park which changed to the forest park with lots of ponds and pools of water. As a result, there is a lot of trees and shrubs. The big advantage of ZOO is the allocation of thematic areas on continents (including characteristic motifs from certain parts of the world). There is also a possibility of direct contact with many animals (of course there are some dangerous animals like rhinos and elephants, but for example, you can enter the kangaroos farm). It is simply a ZOO almost without the bars! :)
Zoo is located a few kilometers north of the town of Zlín. You can arrive there on the road 491. At the ZOO there is a very large parking lot with several entrances (GPS: 49.271365, 17.715141), so the chance is small that there will be no place for your car. What is important, the parking is free.
Ticket prices depend on the date when you will visit the ZOO. The admission in warmer months is simply more expensive. Since we were here in the summer, we will show you the price list in these months. Adults - 120 CZK; students and seniors - 110 CZK; children from 8 to 15 years - 80 CZK; children under 3 years - free entry (all prices are for 2017). Anyway, you can also visit the ZOO website to see the current price list (note: only in Czech language).
As already mentioned, the area of the ZOO is really huge and you can spend an entire day exploring all the available spaces. It's a perfect place to relax for both adults and children - but not only relax, because it is also a source of interesting knowledge. In this ZOO you will see all available animals in their natural habitat - some ZOOs don't show some of the animals to the public. Animals look well cared and well fed. There is also a mini-train, which you can get on and ride around the ZOO area the whole day for a flat fee. If you get hungry, you will find some places in the ZOO where you can rest and eat something. An additional attraction of the ZOO is a tour of beautiful Lešná palace (charges apply - more on the website).
