Urban Zoo in Prague

A few familiar faces in this exceptional zoo.
Wikipedia:
“It was opened in 1931 with the goal to “advance the study of zoology, protect wildlife, and educate the public” in the district of Troja in the north of Prague. In 2013, the zoo occupied 58 hectares (140 acres) with 45 hectares (110 acres) in use for exhibits, and housed around 4,200 animals from just under 650 species, including 132 species listed as threatened.

The zoo is rated as the seventh best zoo in the world by Forbes Travel Guide in 2007, and is rated as the fifth best in the world by TripAdvisor.

The zoo has contributed significantly to saving Przewalski’s horse; for many years, it was the leading breeder of the species. Director is Miroslav Bobek.
