The New Zoo in Poznan
The 116 hectare New Zoo was opened to the public in 1974 after seven years of construction. Located beyond the far east end of Lake Malta, it houses over 2,000 beasts representing 140 species.
The expanse of the zoo is really impressive – you need a whole day to visit it. The zoo is set in a very green area that is quite wild in some parts, giving a botanical feel.
You can get there by taking the Maltanka mini-railway (which starts at the Lake Malta) that goes around quite regularly and transports you from one area to another.
