About The Moscow Zoo 

The zoo was started in the 1860's by two professors and then transferred to the city in the 1920's. This makes it a pretty old and pretty unique. The entrance to the zoo itself is hard to miss and is built to like an old, stone, fairy tale castle with waterfalls and towers. You can't miss it when walking by! Now over 100 years later you can find over 3,000 animals and a gorgeous 40+ acres to walk through.

What To Expect

With all those animals you're going to see quite a variety. You can find everything from monkeys to snakes, and llamas to butterflies! Take a walk through the aquarium, find unique birds in the aviary, visit the sea lion exhibit, or take a nice walk through pretty paths full of waterfalls and streams. Grab your ILP group and head out for a fun day!

How To Get To The Moscow Zoo

Moscow has a great metro system which makes getting around super easy. The entrance to the zoo is right across the street from the Barrikadnaya metro stop. Just get to that stop, and head up to the main road. B. Gruzinskaya 1, Moscow 123242, Russia

Use the address if you're taking a taxi or headed there some other way!

How Much Is It?

If you're a student, you're in luck! Bring your student ID with you and you can get in for free. If you're not a student plan on spending about $9.00 dollars to get in. Take extra money with you to get snacks throughout the zoo, too!
