Olomouc Zoo

The Olomouc Zoological Garden is located on The Holy Hill (Svatý Kopecek) in a mixed forest on an area of 42,5 hectares. The Zoo breeds over three hundred species and participates in the rescue of a number of species involved in European Endangered Species Programme (EEP).

The Zoo is renowned for its quality saltwater aquariums. Blacktip reef sharks can be admired in a large tank of 17,000 liters. Very rare Rodrigues Flying Foxes live in an unconventionally conceived bat exhibit. A crowd favorite is the outdoor enclosure of Japanese Macaques and an exciting enclosure shared by wolves and bears. In the Zoo, there are also several playgrounds and a children’s ropes course Lanácek.
