The zoological expedition to Mniší Hora (Monk Hill) in Brno will excite and tire even the most active child in the world. Children and adults alike will imitate the cute local meerkats.
You will find stylish houses with thatched roofs in the African village at the very top of the hill. They are made in exactly the same way as the villagers in the African savannah have been making them for ages. Some buildings are indoor dwellings for flamingos, lemurs and similar animals, while others prepare snacks, including hot meals, for hungry visitors. But most importantly, there is a safari enclosure with animals ranging from zebras to giraffes. As you eat, you can spend time together...
Hardly any zoo has such a luxurious Kamchatka brown bear enclosure. The animals are happy here and frolic while having their meals, so do not miss their regular feeding hours. The keepers have an extra portion of understanding for misbehaviour here. Every now and then, you will find a sign saying that if you meet a runaway animal, it is all right and there is no need to worry – the animals will get back to their enclosures by themselves.
Mniší Hora is a genuine piece of nature and it operates in wonderful symbiosis with its animal inhabitants. Whenever possible, the route leads in close proximity to rare species without fences and barriers. Children hardly know what to do first here – the rope centre, the playground with creative attractions carved to resemble animals, or the domestic corner with goats begging for granules from the vending machine.
When planning a trip to the Brno Zoo, ideally let it be for the whole day. You will be in the fresh air in the forest, moving all the time and the sight of cute cubs of all kinds will definitely make you smile.
