Silesian zoo in Katowice

24th October 2014

Silesian Zoological Garden  was founded in 1954 and is situated in the Katowice and Chorzów districts of Silesia. It covers over 47.6 ha within the Silesian Central ParkThe Silesian zoo is a home for about 2 500 animals of 300 species. It is visited by over 390 000 people annually.
Last Saturday my daughter visited the zoo. I love zoos too, but I had to stay at home because I caught a cold from my students. I love observing animals and my favourite are big ones. Bu personally I think animals should live in their natural environment but I know the educational purpose is very important.


Hippo is relaxing in sunny day..


My favourite animal giraffe. Why? Because when I was seven I was very tall so my classmates called me Giraffe. But now I am only 170 cm tall. But for my school friends I am "Giraffe" forever... Now it is very funny but in the past it wasn't...

Thanks for visiting

  1. The giraffe is one of my favorites. It's so interesting to see them stretch out those long necks and eat leaves off the trees.

  5. I love zoos that attempt to recreate natural environments for the animals. Also, zoos that rescue animals and aid in the continuation of those endangered.
