- It was founded in 1865 by animal lovers Sophia and Julius Hebgardt. The zoo covers a territory of 7.5 hectares. The symbol of the Zoo is the Polar bear, as these rare arctic animals have been regularly breeding there since 1937. The zoo houses nearly 2,000 animals from 410 species, including some rare examples. Additionally, there are more than a few exhibitions devoted to various topics (primates, ornithological, herbivora). If you wish to take photos, you can purchase permission to shap shots; permission to use your video camera will cost you more.
