What people are saying:

I really enjoyed the Moscow Zoo. The Russians know how to do a three ring circus. I've never laughed so hard at the Russian comics, nor been as excited to watch the performance of those who train the animals as I was at the Moscow Zoo.

    Huge Zoo with alot of animals - but the enclosures for some of the animals was upsetting

    I never write reviews for anything, but I felt that this needed a review. I was quite bothered by parts of the Zoo. I spent about 3-4 hours walking around in the zoo and looking at all of the anim...
