Tallinn Zoo

Tallinn Zoo is located in the naturally beautiful Veskimetsa park forest that is rich in species. Boasting the most exciting collection of wildlife in northern Europe, it is home to more than 7,700 specimens belonging to almost 600 species or subspecies from Australia to Alaska. It has the best collection of wild goats and sheep in the world, as well as a remarkable number of eagles and vultures and an excellent selection of owl and stork species.

The favourites of our visitors are the Elephant House and the Tropical House for their elephants, pygmy hippopotami, snakes, crocodiles, chimpanzees and other rainforest inhabitants.

Good to now: the indoor exhibits are closed on Mondays.
