The Krakow Zoo

From Krakow: Zoo Trip with Transfer

The Krakow Zoo is a medium-sized zoo.
Currently, we exhibit over 1,400 animals, representatives of approximately 270 species. There are a large group of extinct and endangered animals (over 100 species). These include: Rothschild’s giraffe, Przewalski’s horse, pygmy hippopotamus, little panda, snow leopard, Amur tiger, maned wolf, addax antelope, chimpanzee, ruffed and ring-tailed lemurs, Indian elephant, Andean condor, and Humboldt penguin.

The zoo is located in the Wolski Forest – a beautiful forest park, unique in large urban agglomerations. It is a favorite recreation spot for Krakow residents with numerous marked walking trails. Many of them run close to the Zoo, which is often a destination for hiking trips. Bicycle trails and an educational path have been marked in the Wolski Forest. This is a place where there are several historical buildings, including: Independence Mound named after Józef Piłsudski and the monastery and hermitage of the Camaldolese Fathers.
