Prague Zoo opened in 1931 and quickly became one of the most successful breeding and research zoos in the world, being home to the first artificially bred Andean condor, polar bear, and Komodo dragons, among others. Today visitors can see over 5,000 animals from 684 species, including 568 species listed as endangered on the IUCN Red list. With lots to see and do, it’s a great day out for the whole family!
