Zoological Garden in Kraków

Pingwiny  w ZOO
This year, the Zoological Garden in Kraków is celebrating its 90th anniversary. The population of animals, at the beginning of its history, consisted of 94 mammals, 98 birds and 12 reptiles. Currently, the wooded area is home to over 1,400 animals, representing nearly 300 species.

During your visit to the zoo, be sure to see the monkey house, giraffe area, catwalk for big cats, penguin house with a pool filled with azure water or the exotic garden. Animal feeding shows, including elephants, sea lions and penguins, are definitely worth seeing too. They take place every day at specific times (details can be found on the website).

During the summer walk in the garden, it is worth paying attention to its youngest inhabitants – on many catwalks you can see animals that were born in spring and summer, including snowy owls, Australian ibises, ring-tailed lemurs, zebras, eland antelopes or porcupines.

The zoo is open every day throughout the year. There are several food and beverage points near the entrance to the ZOO.

The Zoological Garden is located on the hills, in the Wolski Forest – the largest green enclave of Krakow, 8 km from the city centre. The forest has several bicycle routes and an educational path marked. There are also many historical objects, including the Piłsudski Mound also known as the Independence Mound, as well as the monastery and the hermitage of the Camaldolese monks.
