The Warsaw ZOO in cooperation with Geocaching Warsaw invite you for a walk around the ZOO’s most interesting spots. Entrance to the ZOO is paid. Ticket prices, opening hours and other useful information can be found at zoo.waw.pl.
... The Municipal Zoological Garden was opened on March 11, 1928. Its area was then only 12 ha (compared to 40 ha today), and the collection included nearly 500 specimens of animals.
... the greatest breeding success of the ZOO was the birth of the Indian elephant female "Tuzinka" in 1937.
She was the 12th Indian elephant born in the world in captivity and so far the only one born in Poland.
... in 1939, the ZOO area was enlarged to 32 ha, and thus the Warsaw ZOO became the largest zoological garden in Europe.
... in the ZOO you can find the Crazy Star Villa, where during WWII the director Dr. Jan Żabiński and his wife were hiding Jews who managed to escape from the ghetto. The Żabinski family saved more than 300 Jewish citizens risking of their own lives, for which they were awarded the "Righteous Among the Nations" medal.
... currently, the ZOO has over 12,000 animals (including 9 thousand fish), representing about 500 species, of which nearly 90 species are included in protection programs.
