Zoo in Athens

Greece has everything, and for some time now the zoo in Athens has become no less an attraction of the capital than the ruins of ancient temples and sculptures of gods. Located in the suburbs of Spata, the park is quite young, but since its opening in 2000, it has managed to win the love of local residents and guests of the Greek capital..

Zoological park Attica

More than two thousand inhabitants of Attica Park present 400 species of mammals, reptiles, reptiles and birds to curious visitors. On 20 hectares, there are spacious open-air cages and reservoirs and conditions have been created in which animals feel at home. For the initiated, the name of the Attica Zoological Park in Athens means a lot - rare inhabitants of the planet are successfully preserved here and unique educational programs for schoolchildren and students are being implemented.

Pride and achievement

The Athens Zoo boasts the third largest zoological garden in the world for the number of birds it contains. Initially, it was conceived as a home for birds. Today, more than a thousand representatives of the ornithological kingdom of 300 different species delight visitors and workers of the park with amazing songs and elegant colors. Since 2005, there has been a daily show featuring birds of prey.
And back in 2010, white rhinos settled in the Athens zoo, which, together with zebras and giraffes, adequately represent the African savannah on the land of the ancient Olympic gods..
