First opened in 1929, this lovely zoological garden has grown from a small menagerie to a 20-hectare park, offering visitors the chance to see nearly 1500 animals of almost 300 species, but still manageable size. Most of the exhibitions are outdoors in the natural setting of the nearby Wolski Forest - which makes it a great sunny day activity - and there is surprisingly little to get depressed about it. Among the rare, exotic and endangered species you'll see are Indian elephants, pygmy hippos pygmy, South American sea lions, Humboldt penguins, giraffes, jaguars, camels, dwarf caimans and a surprisingly impressive array of brightly colored feathers of pheasants (our favourite). If the weather is nice, and that you consider the things that you can catch the power of the demonstrations of the sea lions at 09:30, penguins at 10:00, and elephants at 13:00 (and then the sea lions again at 14:00!). There is also a zoo for children, a snack bar for when you are hungry and the ice cream vendors so your kids have something totally useless to nag you on. Bus 134 departs every 20 minutes weekdays and 10 minutes on the weekend of the "Cracovia Stadion' (ul. Jozefa Kaluzy) and drops you at the entrance. Open from 09:00 until approximately the fall of night, you can check the exact hours in line, last entry 1 hour before closing.

The Krakow Zoo is located in Krakow, Poland and was established in 1929. It is home to over 1500 animals from about 260 species.
