Moscow Zoo, Russia’s largest, is an increasingly respected conservation institution, but the main emphasis is on children’s education and entertainment – it’s more about giving the city’s children a chance to see and touch farm animals than about big cats in small cages. Exhibits include a sea aquarium, an aviary, a creatures of the night exhibit, a sea lion exhibit and a section aimed at children. Waterfalls and streams throughout the zoo add to a more natural feeling.
In total, about 6,000 animals of 1000 species are kept in the Zoo, making it Russia’s largest. If you’re coming to Moscow with young children, it’s probably one of the best ways to keep them entertained. Be warned, though, that it can get very crowded on weekends.
