Gdansk Zoological Garden

A visit to Gdansk Zoo is a great way of spending some free time, for young and old. There are hundreds of animals for you to see all year round!



Gdansk Zoo is a perfect destination for an active day away or a lazy stroll, for children, adults and seniors. It is the only place where you can see so many exotic animals: nearly 200 species and more than 1,000 animals from all continents. Most of these are endangered species whose survival is only possible thanks to the work of such zoos. Animal feeding shows, nature lessons, stories about animals, bird ringing, lectures and educational campaigns – these are only some of the activities offered by the zoo. Located on the border of the Tricity Landscape Park, many of its enclosures are open year-round (lions, giraffes, birds and reptiles, monkeys), which means that the zoo is worth visiting regardless of the season.

Did you know that Gdansk Zoo was built in 1954, and is Poland’s largest zoo? It has its own unique microclimate – there was a health resort here previously, for people with respiratory disorders. Maybe that is why the visitors and residents feel so good here! It is the only zoo in Poland where you can see the critically endangered orangutans. This is in addition to many other rare species, including Angola lions, pygmy hippopotamuses, red pandas, chimpanzees, giraffes, cheetahs and elephants.
