One of the most famous zoos in Europe, Prague Zoological Garden is situated right on the bank of the Vltava River in the Troja quarter. This memorable attraction is sure to delight visitors, especially families with young children. If traveling from the center of Prague, guests can reach the zoo via a relaxing river cruise. The port is only a couple of minutes on foot from the Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel, and the concierge department is always available to provide all necessary information and assistance.
The history of Prague Zoological Garden dates back to its ceremonial opening in 1931. Today, the zoo is home to approximately 4,400 animals representing 670 species. The most remarkable zoo attractions include the elephant pavilion, the playful seals and the charming young gorilla born in December 2012. Prague Zoo also became known worldwide for its effort to save a Przewalski horse and return it to the wild.
In 2007, Forbes Travel Guide named Prague Zoo one of the 7 best zoological gardens in the world.
