Kaliningrad Zoo, Kaliningrad

Apart from being one of the largest and oldest zoological gardens in Russia, Kaliningrad Zoo also features a rich, well known arboretum. The zoo was founded in 1896, when this was a German town called Königsberg. Nowadays it houses more than 300 species of animals, including more than 50 species listed as threatened in the International Red Book. The entrance and the walkways are decorated by sculptures, such as a bronze statue of an elk and a stone statue of an orangutan. In the arboretum, look for a relict ginkgo tree, which coexisted with the dinosaurs.
