Liberec Zoo is the oldest in Bohemia! Although it is one of the smaller ones, meaning you can take everything in during a couple of hours, it’s still a highly acclaimed zoo for its success in breeding endangered species. It boasts an extraordinary collection of mountain ungulates and birds of prey, for instance. Some of its most interesting species include the golden takin, the snow leopard, and the black tree monitor. The Astronomical Bird Clock in the Storks’ Nest sings every hour. That’s something you have to see!

Enjoy an adventure and learn something while you’re at it...
