I have loved travelling for as long as I can remember. My parents instilled this love in me at an early age. We spent summers and many weekends travelling around our amazing country of Georgia. but it’s quite another thing when you travel to foreign countries, in our case Poland, you see how beautiful that country is, and you feel good about it.
In this article I want to tell you about my trip to Krakow Zoo yesterday. To start with, I can say that it was amazing and incredible. Let’s start with a little history of the zoo.
The first zoo in Krakow was a small zoo, which was founded in 1895 in Krakowski Park. A few years later it was abolished. Before the creation of the Kraków Zoo, there was the so-called Pheasantry in the Wolski Forest. As the name suggests, it was a pheasant farm, which housed other animals for a while.
The idea of creating a zoo was born in 1927. The Zoological Garden was officially opened on 6 July 1929. On opening day it contained 94 mammals, 98 animals from the 1960s, a shelter for llamas and reindeer birds and 12 reptiles. These were mostly native fauna, but there were also exotic ones, such as monkeys.
During World War II, Krakow Zoo was under German control. Some animals were moved to German gardens. Six adult bison that were removed from the Wolski Forest were killed during the bombing of the Berlin Zoo.
In 1963, an independent enterprise called the City Park and Zoological Garden was established. A period of expansion and reconstruction of the zoo began.
Thanks to all of them, today we can see the amazing Zoo. In a nutshell, it’s impossible to explain what it’s like when you give food to animals with your bare hands. You can see mammals, different kinds of birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish. If you watched the cartoon “Nemo” and want to see this clone fish, you should go to Cracow Zoo. If you have seen the cartoon lion king after that you should come here and be satisfied.
It was real love. A love that consumes you, from which it hurts to be away. A love that lasts forever.
I make it a priority to travel. It not only makes me happy in the short term, but I find it to be extremely fulfilling on a deeper level.
See you …
