- Founded in 1931, the Prague Zoo is now one of the best in Europe, housing 5000 animals of 650 species. Among the pavilions, the Indonesian Jungle transports you into a fresh tangle of greenery and the Monkey Island allows visitors to get up close and personal with primates. Although there were problems in 2002, when a major flood killed many of the animals and destroyed zoo enclosures, the zoo has since recovered and is, again, a thriving zoological garden. But animals aren't all this zoo has to offer, it lies in a lush river valley and boasts spectacular views from atop a rocky cliff. Few city zoos offer such impressive surroundings.
