Haven't been there for 10 years. And think it changed for the worse. Animals are in bad condition. Cages are too small. And it's extremely crowded there. Work day but hundreds of visitors, most are with kids. You are jammed between people,.. Read more » struggling to move around. So would not recommend to visit this place.
An enjoyable experience, we went on a crowded Friday afternoon. What fascinates me was that the zoo is located amongst residential flats. Worthwhile experience
Nice experience, we were travelling to Moscow and my little one really enjoyed meeting the animals.
The zoo has 2 sections and lots of animal species, you will need to walk a lot to cover the whole park

Small area between city buildings, but interesting and really it worth to see. Unusual location gives this Zoo some charms ?
Really cute animals. Very easy to find and navigate through. Great experience.
Lots of renovations going on to update and improve the zoo. Currently it's fairly modern, although some of the animals are in dingy or too small cages. Hopefully the remains will address this. Overall very large, lots of cafes, great for familie.. Read more »s.
Nice zoo, in the heart of the city. A beautiful place to walk around. I've seen more impressive ones though, like in Amsterdam and Belgium.

Many of them were moving like patients in a psychiatric asylum or looking sad or were hiding to avoid the extreme noise of the crowds of the visitors.

Great place for adults and kids. Lots of great animals to see, well maintained and very well decorated. If you visit Moscow, make sure to check it out.
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.. Read more » to change the price. Great afternoon out never the less!
Easily gets crowded. At every indoors pavilion huge crowds and lines. So much for Zoo in the center of the city. Although the area with small and great ponds is very nice. Amazing they even have big colony of pink flamingo
