Zoo

The Warsaw Zoo is a place where neither adults or children will ever get bored. The zoo is home to several thousand different animal species, including elephants, giraffes, meerkats, and venomous snakes. You will have the chance to see the comfortable abode of gorillas and the modern hippo habitat. If you like places with history, then take a look inside the Żabiński Villa. During World War II, the zoo’s director, Antoni Żabiński, gave shelter to those in need, mainly Jews who had escaped from the ghetto, accommodating them in the villa’s basement.
