After two years of hard work, the revamped Limassol Zoo was inaugurated in 2012. The zoo is one of the biggest in Europe and hosts beautiful and interesting animals, equally attractive to the public.
The inauguration took place on 1 June 2012 by the Mayor of Limassol Andreas Christou, in the presence of a great number of distinguished guests. Ms Eliska Kubikova, the director of Jihlava Zoo, welcomed the opening of the LZ and expressed her excitement, wishing the best for this new project.
Specially designed natural-looking habitats were created for all types of animals residing at the zoo. All species are well taken care of and are given the required attention and love, as well as proper nutrition. Guests can enjoy their stroll and grab the opportunity to take a close look at the animals in a pleasant environment, since all safety regulations are observed.
In addition to the entertainment offered to the visitors, the LZ further participates, along with all the other zoos, in what is a zoo’s main mission, namely the research, protection, reproduction and release into the nature of endangered species. With the creation of a modern educational centre, visitors, especially children and students, are able to benefit from organized educational lectures, guided tours and updates relating to the animals, wildlife and fauna.
By visiting this small modern Zoo, visitors will have the chance to view remarkable, beautiful and interesting animals, birds and reptiles from all continents.
Pioneering signs have been created for all species, containing the most interesting information with regard to each animal. Educational animal feedings take place on a daily basis by caregivers, thus providing more information to visitors in relation to specific species of animals.
The zoo includes a cafeteria called “Flamingo”, specially created for the recreation and relaxation of the visitors. The cafeteria offers unobstructed views to the sea, the greenery of the area and of course the flamingos! The modern playground and children’s corner with mini goats and sheep are sure to provide unforgettable moments to all young visitors.
