About the Pchjongjang Central ZOO

The Pchjongjang Central Zoo was founded in 1959 and it covers an area of approximately 1km2. There are more than 5,000 animals from 650 species in the zoo. The main attractions of Pchjongjang Central Zoo are giant pandas and elephants from a blood line of an elephant donated by Ho Chi Minh to the president Kim Ir Sen in 1959. Originally, the zoo’s aim was to present animals solely from Korea, but with time animals that were donated were added. There are a few hippos, lamas, tigers or lions. The Pchjongjang Central Zoo also participates in breeding of Korean dogs Yindo. The Pchjongjang Central Zoo was enlarged in 1985 with a pavilion of terrarium and aquarium animals- most of the animals for this new pavilion were donated by a director of Swedish Skansen, Mr.Jonas Wahlströmem
