Attica Zoo Park has more than 350 animal species, and half of these species are endangered. There are exotic animals and one section of the park is dedicated to Greek fauna, where the brown bear is the stand-out attraction.

Bird lovers will enjoy the large variety of birds species. In the past, Attica Zoo Park was designed as an ornithological park and that is why it hosts the third biggest bird collection in the world.

But there is more to do in the Athens Zoo. The petting farm with its bunnies and goats is great for young kids. There is a large wooden playground near the farm and the turtle pond. Don’t forget to pay a visit to the educational center. There are many interesting objects that kids can touch such as a dried snake skin, animal bones and feathers.
