Naprawdę fajny ogród zoologiczny, dużo gatunków zwierząt, zwierzęta zadbane. Polecam miłośnikom zwierząt. more »Really nice zoo, a lot of animal species, well-grotted animals. I recommend to pet lovers.
Very nice and clean park. Very big, you can plan an entire day trip. A lot of information is written in English. Beautiful surroundings and nice picnic area. I recommend to take snack and drink with you. We saw a lot of different animals. Very interesting. We enjoyed in dolphin show also. From the animal's point of view, this is kind of a prison - restricted area of movement, many visitors. The reality is a little sad, but it is visible that staff is taking care very good for all animals. All praise for this. In the end is very nice souvenir shop.
Zoo Barcelona has been a pleasant discovery for me (I don;t like zoos actually)! Quiet, full of old trees and sunny lawns, it's a hermitage for lots of happy animals. The habitats are built with love and common sense. I loved the possibility to see giraffes, kangaroos, various birds, one amazing Komodo dragon and lots of other inhabitants of this wonderful zoo, where you can spend a day like a journey to the world of nature. The place is definitely worth coming back again and again.
