Kharkiv Zoo is a popular attraction in the city of Kharkiv, Ukraine. Over the years, the zoo has undergone significant upgrades and renovations, resulting in a more modern and clean environment. Visitors who had previously been to the zoo in 2008 noticed a huge difference and found the improvements to be highly appealing. The zoo boasts a wide variety of animals, including a majestic tiger, giraffes, meerkats, wolves, deer, and rams. It is a must-visit place for animal lovers in Kharkiv. Although some animals were sheltered due to weather conditions during the visit, the zoo is now open to the public and offers a well-constructed and well-maintained experience. While renovations are still ongoing, the zoo is already a great place for enjoyment in the city center. There are clean toilets available, as well as snack shops for refreshments. Visitors are provided with a helpful map upon entrance. Although some visitors noted that not all animals were present during their visit, they still found the design of the zoo to be impressive. The atmosphere is pleasant, with relaxing music playing in the background. However, there were some concerns about overcrowding in certain areas of the zoo, particularly in buildings housing giraffes and Australian animals. Despite the ongoing reconstruction, the zoo is highly regarded as an awesome place to visit. It is reminiscent of the EcoPark in Valencia and the staff, including guides, guards, and janitors, are commended for their dedication in making the zoo a better place. Some visitors expressed their excitement to return when the zoo is fully open to the public. It is worth noting that entry to the zoo requires a City card, which some visitors found inconvenient, as it requires providing personal information. However, the new zoo is described as impressive, with many nice installations to explore. Overall, Kharkiv Zoo is an interesting and enjoyable place to visit. The zoo's charm lies not only in the animals but also in the opportunity to take fun and memorable pictures with friends or family. Visitors are highly recommended to invite their friends from Kyiv and other countries when they visit Kharkiv.
