About zoo

Max, the male Indian elephant, really enjoyed his first birthday celebrations at Prague zoo. A large crowd of visitors stood in The Valley of the Elephants to watch Max, in the company of the younger elephant Rudi, enjoy his birthday gifts.

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.
