Zoo and Botanical Garden

The zoo is the perfect place for a family trip, as you will here find more than 1,300 animal species in an attractive hilly area with small lakes and ponds as well as arboretum and rocks. A pair of Indian rhinoceros and Rothschild´s giraffes are considered to be one of its biggest stars, but you will meet an open-space outdoor ground for monkeys and the second largest bear garden in Europe. The botanical part of this venue, with a meditation Japanese garden, invites you to relax after experiencing the wildlife, and for catching breath again.

Do & See

Pilsen city shape is dominated by impressive buildings and even more breathtaking historical monuments that cannot missed out when admiring the 'skyline', but you should also head there for having a proper look around. Take your time and stroll around in the city centre, as all the sights (and sites) are within walking distance, and you will probably find some hidden gem that you can then advise your friends.
