75 years of Prague zoo

Prague zoo in Troja is the most visited zoo in the Czech Republic. Every year it attracts more than one million of visitors. On 28th September it commemorates 75 years from its foundation.

First visitors could go through the gates of Prague zoo on 28th September 1931 where they could see wolves, a lioness, ..... and parrots. The zoo has enlarged since that time significantly, the latest addition is the African house or the pavilion Indonesian jungle.

To celebrate this special occasion the zoo is going to come back to the atmosphere of 1930s. In Troja you can hear swing, see people in period costumes or synchronized swimmers in the sea lions’ pool, wearing striped leotards.

The programme starts at 11.00 and offers a lot of things to see, e.g. the performance The story of lioness Sarka (Pribeh lvice Sarky) – one of the first animals in this zoo, a vernissage of pictures near the elephant pavilion or ‘christening’ of a young tapir.
