New Zoo

The place is huge. Really, really, really huge! It's about 116 hectares big and requires about 2 hours just to walk it. Expect spending at least 6-7 hours if you want to have a good look at all the exhibited animals. The zoo is full of green, gardens and trees and is a perfect place for a big walk or a picnic with your friends. Furthermore, an artificial river halves the zoo in two parts creating a perfect scenery.

The park houses over 2,000 animals, representing more than 150 species and features most of the popular animals you would expect from a zoo, like elephants, giraffes, tigers, kangaroos etc. What makes it really stand out is the massive bird collection, including all kinds of eagles, condors, owls etc. It also has a small insectarium with some cool insects.

All in all, it is a massive place, close to the center of Poznan, where you can experience the beauty of nature with all your five senses. If you ever happen to be in Poznan make sure to visit it. Just make sure to bring a pair of comfortable shoes with you as you will be doing a lot of walking!

Interestingly, Poznan actually has two operational zoos. The new and the old one. Most of the animals have been transferred in the New Zoo, however the old one still keeps a few in exhibition, including komodo dragons!
