The Liberec zoological garden is the oldest zoological garden in the former Czechoslovakia. It was founded in 1919, however, its roots can be dated back to the beginning of the 20th century. In an area of 14 hectares up to 160 species of animals from all continents can be admired. Among our most interesting species are the Golden Takin, Hamadryas Baboon, Kea, Barbary Lion, Red Panda, Asian Elephant, Reindeer, a lot of species of apes, Meercats, Reticulated Python and of course, the very popular White Tiger. Only in our Zoo you will also get to see the four biggest species of owls, a rare collection of birds of prey and a lot of unique representatives of the Asian bird kingdom. The route through the Zoo is about 1,8 km long and we recommend to allow at least 2 to 3 hours of your time, but it is also possible to spend a whole day! Apart from our amazing animals in our Zoo you can find a fast food restaurant, relaxation areas, kids attractions, a shop with souvenirs opened seasonally and of course sanitary facilites.
It is possible to park right by the entrance to the Zoo or at our second car park which is 500m away from the entrance (Fibichova street). The Zoo is easy to reach by tram too (terminal stop Zoo-Lidove sady). You can pay for tickets by credit/debit card or it is also possible to pay in Euros at the ticket office.
We would like to thank all visitors for abiding by the visitor rules. For safety, technical and operational reasons and also for the sake of the well-being and peace of the animals, dogs are not allowed in the Zoo.
We do not allow roller or in-line skating, riding segway type vehicles or boarding of any sort (skate-, wake-, long-, penny-, hover-, and similar), on our premises.
It is also forbidden to ride a bike or scooter in our Zoo. There is a bike and scooter stand available for cyclists at the main entrance to the Zoo.
Thank you for your understanding.
We are looking forward to your visit and we believe that you'll have a very pleasant time with your family or close ones in our Zoo.
