The Warsaw Zoological Garden is a home to over 12, 000 animals representing more than 500 species. The Zoo includes Polish natives, such as otters, browns bears and storks, but also exotic species including African elephants, Rothschild giraffes, Indian rhinoceros, gibbons, hippopotamus, gorillas and chimpanzees, various species of birds, reptiles and tropical fish. Most animals can be viewed from runways, but they are kept inside the buildings in winter. Birds can be found wandering freely around the zoo, living around its ponds and aviaries. The Zoo also features a petting zoo called “Fairytale Zoo” (Baśniowe Zoo), where kids can pet and feed the goats, donkeys and rabbits; the state-of-the-art aquarium inhabited by sharks and stingrays; and a large, modern playground.
Children 0-3 y.o., seniors (70+) and handicapped people have free admission to the Zoo.

It's a bit old...

Not the best Zoo we have been too, but still worth the visit. It's conveniently located and easily accessible by public transportation. The Zoo is set up as a park and definitely nice to walk around. It's pretty old though, in fact they're celebrating 90th birthday this year, so beside the animals this zoo displays a lot of history too. The recent movie The Zookeeper's Wife is based on a true story of Warsaw Zoo director and his wife, who saved the lives of 300 Jews during WWII.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.

The Zoo is quite big so you can spen there a couple hours. They have a nice aquarium, a hippopotamus display where you can see them swimming under water, a large chimpanzees habitat, and many other. Some animals have more space than the others but the zoo is doing its best to improve it and has done a lot of work over the years. The zoo has also a nice playground.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.
It’s really hard to park near the zoo (space is limited especially during a weekend) so the best way to get there is either to take a public transportation or a taxi. Also, keep in mind that the zoo doesn’t allow balloons on its grounds but there are ballon vendors right outside the zoo entrance. So if your child Insists on getting a ballon, buy it afterwards.
