Prague Zoo is the fifth best in the world!


25. 09. 2017

In a competition of hundreds of top zoos from all over the world, Prague Zoo reached the Top Five. The information is based on visitors' reviews and ratings at global travel portal TripAdvisor. This is the third time in a row Prague Zoo has reached a high position.

"Its pure joy!" commented Mr. Miroslav Bobek, Prague Zoo Director on this success, and adds: "We've reached one of absolute top positions for several years now and we are the first to do so in Continental Europe. Big thanks go to all our visitors, friends, and, in particular, to the employees of Prague Zoo and its founder!"

Prague ZOO is the most visited zoo in the Czech Republic. Last year it reached more than 1.4 million visitors and this year's visits exceeded 1.1 million so far. In previous TripAdvisor ratings, it took fourth (2015) and seventh place (2014); no rating was published by TripAdvisor in the 2016. In the near future, construction of new exhibition pavilions for gorillas, polar bears, or giant pandas are planned in Prague Zoo. However, there are still two old problem spots: anti-flood protection and transport accessibility.
