About zoo

From 1 July, there is a new park and ride area for parking at Povltavská Street. It accommodates up to 260 cars and visitors who leave their car there can use the shuttle service to the gates of Prague Zoo. Parking costs 50 crowns per day and the shuttle service is already included in the price.

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.
