EXHIBITS

The Zlín Zoo is not built of cages, but it is a modern bio-park with spacious natural exhibition of animals. Individual exhibitions are sensitively set in a forest environment and faithfully imitate original habitats of animals. Zoo’s originality is the division of the premises by respective continents. Mammals and birds live here in common exhibitions or in adjoining outlets and you, as visitors, can get acquainted with typical and best-known representative animals of Africa, Asia, Australia, Central and South America.
