A Full Day of Entertainment

A Full Day of Entertainment

Year after year, the Tallinn Zoo offers 89 hectares of fun for the whole family.

 

Ten thousand animals and 500 species means that with a quick walk through the zoo you can’t see it all. Everything is fascinating, from the smallest insects to the majestic elephants.The zoo is open daily throughout the year, though in summer there are a few more services. For example, children can take a ride on the train or on a pony. There is a new adventure park. Animal feeding time is interesting to watch. The seals are fed every day at 13.00.

You can even feed the water birds yourself. Ten cents gets you a bag of bird feed.

With the same ticket you can also gain entry to the Tallinn Car Museum. And it’s entirely possible that animals are more interesting to men than nostalgic Soviet-era cars.

All of the cafes at the zoo are open in summer, which offer something for kids and adults.

While the zoo won’t fill up that easily with visitors, parking sure does at the weekends, so it may be easier to visit the zoo by taking public transport or a taxi. Trolley busses 6 and 7, as well as buses 21, 21B, and 22 travel north towards the Paldiski mnt entrance. A taxi ride from the city centre to the zoo should cost you no more than €10, so be sure to read the prices before you get in.

You can find more information about exhibits on the Tallinn Zoo webpage.
