Korkeasaari Zoo, Helsinki

3.5
#2 of 11 in Zoos & Aquariums in Finland
Since it was established in 1889, Korkeasaari Zoo has attracted tourists and animal lovers for more than a century. The zoo's rocky island location attracts as much awe as the animals here; in fact, the island was a national park and used for fishing in 1569 until the establishment of the zoo in the 19th century. Discover this quiet spot removed from the city center where you can view over 150 animal species and 1,000 types of plants. Walk through the site's popular cat valley and get to know the exotic creatures at one of Europe's oldest zoos. Put Korkeasaari Zoo into our Helsinki trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
