Moscow Zoo

Moscow Zoo has come a long way from its beginnings as a small zoological garden to the large scientific, educational and conservation institution that it is today.

The zoo was founded in 1864 on the original 17th century territory of the village of Voskresenkoye near the Presnya River. The nearby Presnya ponds were famous for their pure water, and in the 18th century a large fish farm was set up here.
