ZOO Liberec is located at the eastern end of the city right at the foot of the Jizera Mountains. It has a really picturesque location – it is spread along a small valley. It is famous for the behavior of the white tiger or takin, the national animal of Bhutan. It is proud to be the oldest zoo in the Czech Republic. Expect 2–3 hours to visit

Folk sets

ZOO Liberec can be found at the final tram in Lidové sady with the famous lookout tower. The car park is not large here, so visitors often park around where possible. Admission is CZK 80 per child from 3 years and CZK 100 per adult

Zebras, buffaloes and camels

As soon as you go through the entrance gate, you will reach the first paddock. Here are Chapman's zebras and white-fronted buffaloes. Next to it is a paddock of bipedal camels

Indian elephants

In addition to the tapir, two Indian elephants are home. It's interesting to watch when the branches get to the snack

Contact zoo

You get to rest places – refreshments, playgrounds, contact zoo, toy car rides. You are also getting on the route of the train, the fear of parents with small children, who will no longer be interested in everything else.

Sea lions

The sea lion pavilion is very interesting. You can watch them through the underwater window as they swim or from the top from several vantage points. An additional attraction is their feeding

Flamingos

There is also a beautiful flock of flamingos in the Liberec zoo. It is almost unbelievable that they do not mind living in the cramped spaces of a small lake and its surroundings

Pheasants, meerkats, turtles and baboons

At the northern end of the lower zoo you will find several smaller pavilions. Meerkats and baboons are definitely worth a stop

Leopards and features

From the owls the road still climbs and from the top you have a view to the outside view of chimpanzees, then there is a small aviary with a red panda and a pavilion of smaller carnivores such as a leopard and a lynx. The journey continues around the beautiful Somali donkeys
