Nestled in a pristine green area, provides for about 2,800 animals representing 377 species, some of which are endangered. Dating back to 1901, the zoo started off as the private aquarium collection of the mayor. Over time, it grew into an institution with one of the richest varieties of animals in the country. In 2003, the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums added it to their list, making it the first one in Ukraine to be internationally certified. Walk through the grounds and encounter wild and domestic animals of all kinds and sizes: you'll see tigers at play, observe hippopotamuses, and watch the monkeys.

Nikolaev Zoo Reviews
Зоопарк понравился, несмотря на то, что в нём практически ничего не меняли со времён совка, и капитальных ремонтов не заметно, персонал очень старается - везде чисто, звери ухожены и явно очень сыты, ... more »The zoo liked, despite the fact that it almost did not change anything since the scoop, and major repairs are not noticeable, the staff tries very hard - everywhere clean, animals are well-groomed and clearly very well-fed, saw vegetables for the feed of animals - such beautiful still need to look for. Everywhere you can see that the staff makes every effort as much as possible and in their power. I would like the state and patrons to invest well there and make a thorough reconstruction. The proposal to sell food for animals, so that you can feed them themselves) - and visitors in joy, and the budget of the zoo can be replenished. Anyway, thank you for having a great day!!!
