Many times, Prague can become a bit dull as most of the tourist spots are historical buildings. But fret not; Prague Zoo is to the rescue. It is the place to go to spruce up the trip especially for children. Built in 1931, the Prague Zoo was built to help students and scholars gain advanced knowledge in wildlife and zoology. As per checks in 2013, the zoo occupied 58 hectares of land with 45 hectares being used for exhibit purposes.
With more than 4200 animals belonging to 650 different species, the Zoo of Prague is also home to 132 endangered species. Named as seventh best zoo by Forbes Travel Guide in 2007, it is incredible how the Prague zoo has transformed itself. While the idea of the zoo was proposed in 1881 in a newspaper article, it finally opened its gates to the public on 28th September 1931.
Over the years the Zoo of Prague has added many wildlife creatures to it its exhibition. They also have been breeding animals artificially since a polar bear was bred in 1942. After that the zoo kept increasing its capacity and adding new exhibits. In 2004, the zoo opened the country’s largest pavilion named “Indonesian Jungle”.
The year of 2012 proved to be quite eventful for the Zoo of Prague, with over 1557 babies born to animals belonging to 211 different species. Amongst these, crown turtle and red panda have been the most unique breedings.
Recently, the Prague Zoo has opened a pavilion which houses 33 critically endangered Chinese giant salamanders, which makes it one of the three best zoos in the world.
