  • It’s big and clean my daughter loved the place. We paid for tickets 🎫 at the entrance and we paid later for entering other parts like insects and riding the horse in a carriage. The interesting part was watching the Panda. There are many artistic corners where a visitor can take wonderful pictures.
  • The zoo is quite a good place to see animals in the heart of Moscow but a word of warning - staff might change the price of the visits to the zoo at the last minute. We ended up paying more than the advertised price because the administration decided to change the price. Great afternoon out never the less!
