Troja ZOO

Troja, elefant The experience of Prague Zoo, all but forgotten by most city guides, and shunned by almost all tourists, is nonetheless one that will stay with you for a long time.

The zoo is 2-3 km's from the city centre, up in a river gorge, where the escarpment climbs steeply away from the river. She occupies a lush river valley, with the rocky cliff faces and rolling meadows at the summit, providing for a stunning vista.

Troja, tigr The walk around the zoo is complex, and the map is less helpful than it might be, but there is a lot to see here. It's a traditional collection, of course, so expect to see penguins, sea lions, lions, tigers, and elephants, and you won't be disappointed. But you might not expect Markhor, and Ibex - superbly held in mountain enclosures that could scarcely be better designed for them. The grazers at the top of the hill are magnificent. And the views are spectacular.
