We thank you for your understanding.


We recommend purchasing e-tickets. It's quick, easy and you won't have to wait at the ticket office - with the ticket on your mobile phone you can go straight to the turnstiles. An e-ticket is valid for six months from the date of purchase.


What about wearing respirators and disinfection in the grounds?
When visiting the zoo, FFP2 respirators, or their equivalent, are required when entering the pavilions, exhibitions, restaurants, shops and toilets. Nose and mouth protection is also compulsory in outdoor areas where it is not possible to keep a distance of 2 metres from others, including waiting in queues. Non-contact disinfectant dispensers have been located around the grounds.

How are tickets sold?
We recommend purchasing an e-ticket via the app. However, tickets can also be purchased on the day at the ticket offices.

What are the opening hours? How do the car parks work?
Opening hours on weekdays and weekends are from 9 am to 7 pm. The main and south entrances to the grounds are open on weekdays, and visitors can use the south car park and the car park at the chateau. In addition, the north entrance and north car park will always be open on weekends.

Is the cable car running?
Yes, the cable car at Prague Zoo is running as normal.

What about extending season tickets?
Season ticket holders can ask for an extension.
