Kharkiv Zoo

Kharkiv Zoo, founded in 1895, is one of the oldest zoos in Europe.
It was founded in 1895 at the University, on the initiative of professor of zoology A. Brandt. New enclosures, as well as the main entrance to the zoo, preserved to this day, were built in the 1930's. Many animals died during the occupation of the city, and a significant part of the collection was restored only due to the incredible efforts of the workers of the zoo in the postwar years.
