Krakow ZOO


Paweł Potoniec

Whether you’re into zoos or not, as far as they go this is a good one: pleasant, interesting and small enough to be got round without knocking yourself out, maintained to very high standards by a clearly dedicated and professional staff and situated in as beautiful a spot - in the thick of the Wolski Woods - as just about any zoo in Europe. The animals look well nourished and cared for and the wily denizens of the wild dog area - our particular favourites - stink so much to high heaven that any kids you have with you will quickly become exhilarated and you may face control issues. If you are an adult there’s a good chance these guys will have you reaching for your hanky.

For those less than thrilled by the stench of psychotic looking canines there are other highlights. There are big cats aplenty, looking as bored as they always do in zoos, the monkeys are great value (though parents/carers should note that this lot do seem inordinately fond of playing with themselves) and the reptile house is well stocked. The aviaries are pretty good as well and there are also local specialities like bison. There’s a mini zoo in which kids can feed the animals - the top attractions here are probably the black Vietnamese pigs – and a well appointed children’s playground. The picnic area is clean and nicely set up – a lovely spot to eat and rest on a sunny day. Just outside there’s a place selling sausages, chips and other delicacies in an enclosed woodland atmosphere. This makes a great day out, or half day out, from the hustle and bustle of town.
