Have you already visited the Prague Zoo?

I have one friend, who is, while she is traveling, always the most interested in visiting the local Zoo in the city she is exploring. Well, she studies biology at university, but visiting the Zoo can be fun for anyone. Did you already hear about the Prague Zoo? According to the article, which appeared in the Forbes Magizine in the beginning of November last year, the Prague Zoo is on the 7th place of the World´s best Zoos! Is not that an amazing position? So if you are still hesitating whether visit this place or not, that might be an argument for you why yes. Well, they had reasons for putting the Prague zoological garden so high in this list.

There are of course really many different kinds of animals to be seen, among them the most popular are probably gorillas (they even had their own “reality show” called Revealed which appeared online), then there are elephants, polar bears, penguins, giraffes etc. The garden is quite well-cultivated, visitors friendly, there are some refreshment areas and so on, therefore it is an ideal place to spend a nice part of the day.

They are also organizing many interesting programs, such lectures, night tours and so on. In March, opening hours are from 9 AM to 5 PM, in April and May is opened from 9 AM to 6 PM, from June to August even until 7 PM. The entrance fee is 150 Czk for an adult, 100 Czk reduced (children, students, seniors), but if you are to stay in Prague for longer and you really are into animals, it is much better bargain to buy a permanent ticket for 500 Czk which is valid for one year. So when the first spring sun beams shine, you can enjoy them in the Zoo, which is among the top 10 of the whole world.
