About zoo

Last week another two Egyptian Vultures were taken from Prague Zoo to the Bulgarian mountains. Both of this year’s young, one of which hatched at Zlín Zoo, will spend about three weeks in an artificial nest and then be released to bolster the numbers of this endangered species in the wild.

History

The history of Prague Zoo goes all the way back to the year 1881, when, on the occasion of the wedding of Crown Prince Rudolf and Princess Stephanie of Belgium, Count Sweerts-Sporck published an open letter in the newspapers calling for the establishment of a zoological garden in Prague.
