About the Zoo

ANIMALS AROUND THE WORLD IN THE KARELIAN FOREST

We invite you to visit the only Zoo in Karelia where you can get acquainted with a great variety of animals of Russia and other countries. Our animals and birds live in a picturesque place. The Zoo is surrounded by the Karelian forest and it is situated on the original landscape. The natural relief of the terrain, trees and artificial ponds create a house for a large number of hoofed animals, predators and birds including rare species that are listed in the Red Book.

You can touch some of the animals, pet little ponies and feed deer. Yes, it’s allowed to pet our animals (with a few exceptions). You may also feed them with a special treat that you can buy at the entrance – your attention will make them happy.

HUNDREDS OF ANIMALS AND BIRDS

There are a lot of different species of animals in our Zoo: from little and nimble raccoons to large bisons, from familiar deer and camels to rare and exotic takins. All of them are our beloved pets and we take care of them as of our children. The animals live on an open-air spacious area surrounded by clear Karelian lakes and forests. We have saved natural conditions for a comfortable life of the animals and created a special environment for those animals that need it. For example, there are some ponds for waterfowls.

Many of the animals like the warmth of human hands and let to pet them with pleasure. Some of them have started a family of their own and have cubs. The Zoo is regularly expanding with new species of animals and birds.
