About Prague Zoo
Prague Zoo is located near the famous Troja Botanic Garden and Troja Castle. This territory was presented to the government of Czech Republic by a philanthropist at the beginning of the XX century. After several years of projecting the first Czech Zoo, several species found new house in the newly constructed aviaries. Among the pilgrims were horses, wolves and several birds.
If you look at the Prague Zoo map, you will notice that it’s territory as well as the number of inhabitants increased numerously.
