The Krakow Zoo is situated in Poland , in the city of Krakow , in a vast area of the Wolski forest. The Krakow Zoo is surrounded by woods and a very pretty and interesting landscape.

Look Back into the History

In 1926 a pheasantry was established in the Wolski forest. A year later an idea emerged - to construct the Krakow Zoo in a nearby clearing in the middle of the forest. The following year the construction of the whole complex took place, including the aviary and animal cages construction. The Krakow Zoo was inaugurated on 6th July 1929 with the presence of the Polish president of that time - Ignacy Mościcki. At the moment of inauguration, there were 205 exhibits, including many kinds of mammals, birds, reptiles as well as more exotic animals such as the monkey. In the Second World War period, the Krakow Zoo came under the German administration and some animals were taken to the zoological garden in Berlin . A breakthrough happened in 1975 with the enlargement and modernisation of the zoo, which gained a similar appearance to the one it has today. Nowadays, the Krakow Zoo is famous and popular almost all around the world.

What to See

The Krakow Zoo boasts more than 2000 animals, which represent more than 300 animal species from all around the world. All this in an area of 20 hectare. Among the most interesting animals of the Krakow Zoo belong seals, camels, elephants, great predators, kangaroos, ostriches, antelopes and African zebras. The youngest visitors of the Krakow Zoo will appreciate the recently constructed Mini Zoo, where children can be in close contact with small animals such as ponies, rabbits, guinea pigs, turtles or miniature goats. The Krakow Zoo belongs to the WAZA organization, i.e. the The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and it participates in the reproduction of rare animals such as the condor, the chimpanzee, the leopard, the jaguar, the pygmy hippopotamus and many others. The Krakow Zoo is open daily from 9 to 19.
