Animal feeding shows to start again this summer
As each summer, from 1 June to 31 August, the visitors will have an opportunity to watch animal feeding shows at the Zoo. Feeding shows will take place every day from 11:45 to 14:15, except 23 and 24 June. Note that shows can be canceled due to heavy rain or if there have been important changes in animals' life.
