Moscow Zoo - New Kids Zoo


Moscow Zoo is a perfect kids activity. And the downtown setting of this zoo is amazing as you're surrounded by Moscows skyscrapers. The downside of its location that there is hardly any parking, so come by metro!
Moscow Zoo

The first time we went here it was a bit of a shock. The cages were quite small, uninspiring, not very safe and many of the animals were not present. But when you cross the bridge to the new part this impression changes. Here you will find nice and spacious habitats for the animals both indoor&outdoor and you will see some nice exotic animals like giraffes, monkeys and polar bears.

And Moscow Zoo recently opened a new area, which is called the "Kids Zoo". It's a lovely done petting zoo, which has lots of nice and modern features to explore and learn about all kinds of different farm animals. So even if you have visited the Zoo before, it's worth checking this out.
Children under 17 are free and an adult ticket costs 500RB. If you want to avoid the lines buy your ticket in advance online on their website. If you want to see their aquarium you have to pay separately in the zoo.
TIP! Go for lunch across the entrance at Zoo beer&Grill!

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
