Yalta Zoo “Skazka” (Russian for “Fairy Tale”) is the only Ukrainian privately owned zoo. At present more than 120 species of animals can be found in the Zoo, all of which were delivered from all continents of the globe.
The zoo is located in a very beautiful and unique place from where a wonderful view of Yalta city and the Crimean mountains can be enjoyed. The zoo opened in 1995 and was visited by over 1 million of people. Many animals here have names of their own written on tables. As it is still winter many animals were hiding in their homes, but those that could be seen, made the journey to the zoo worth it.
