ZOO Ohrada Hluboká nad Vltavou opened its gates to its visitors in 1939 as part of the hunting lodge Ohrada on the initiative of its then owner JUDr. Adolf Schwarzenberg, who decided after numerous expeditions to Nairobi, Africa. It is located approx. 1 km from the famous castle Hluboká nad Vltavou and the whole place is very attractive for a combination of both trips - to the castle and to the ZOO.
Information for visitors
Interesting facts Zoo Hluboká
You will find various species of domestic and exotic animals, a total of about 300 species in more than 3,000 specimens. Despite the fact that the original intention of ZOO Ohrada was to focus on the breeding of domestic, European and some Asian animals, you will also find representatives of fauna from Africa, Australia or America. Lovers of peaceful domestic animals, as well as dangerous beasts or various species of reptiles, will find something to their liking. With the neighboring Munich pond focusing on the breeding of various species of waterfowl, the spectacle is complete.
The zoo is adapted for children, so you can go here without any problems, for example with a pram. It may also be interesting for your children to feed the animals, which take place every day except Sunday, when the beasts are fasting.
For those who would like to help, ZOO Ohrada Hluboká nad Vltavou gives you the opportunity to become a so-called adoptive parent of a particular animal of a given species. Adoptive parenthood can be concluded against the provided financial amount for a period of one year with the possibility of extension.
