We all come from childhood, as Exupery once said. Everyone has fond memories of weekend trips to wonderful places with their parents. Someone went to the zoo - to look at the elk elk, at funny penguins behind glass and at a tall aristocratic giraffe, someone went to museums and listened to the stories of mothers about great artists or fathers about the great inventors of the past, and someone happily swam with parents in the pool and rode down the slides in the water parks. Now these children have already grown up, have started families themselves, and many of them are wondering - where to go with their children? What to show them so interesting and funny so that their childhood is no less bright? Before planning a route, it is worth considering the interests of the child. For example, not everyone wants to spend Sunday morning in a quiet museum where you can't run and jump. However, Novosibirsk is a multifaceted city, where there are many places where both quiet people and fidgets can go!
If your family loves animals, we suggest going to one of the zoos in Novosibirsk. Observing the habits of this or that animal, you can learn a lot about the nature around us and how life works on planet Earth. There are several excellent zoos in Novosibirsk (including contact ones), and now we will tell you about them.
The zoo is a great place for a child to get acquainted with wildlife, exotic animals and the colorful diversity of our planet's fauna. The Novosibirsk Zoo named after Rostislav Aleksandrovich Shilo is one of the largest in our country; about half of the animals kept there are listed in the Red Book! It is worth going here with a child at least once, because our children see many animals only in a picture in a book. Surely it will be interesting for a child to look at the variety of felines that live there. Many beautiful tigers, lions, pumas and leopards will delight him!
DAILY, NO WEEKEND Tickets cost from 150 to 300 rubles, children under 7 years old, as well as those with benefits - free!
For young naturalists who want to get to know animals better, contact zoos are open in Novosibirsk. Visit the Laplandia town farm, for example. Here, children are invited to communicate with large pets like ponies and mini-pigs, as well as pet a funny raccoon and look at a prickly hedgehog.
The institution is open daily from 11:00 to 20:00, a ticket to such a place is cheaper than to the zoo - 120 rubles. You can also purchase animal feed for a symbolic 60 rubles. It is worth saying that children under 10 years old only go with their parents.
