Riga Zoo opens up for night owls

Take note – story published 6 years ago

"Night at the Museum" was a hit at the box office and the administration at Riga Zoo is hoping "Night at the Zoo" will prove to be a similar draw as it throws open the famous gates in Mežaparks to the public during the hours of darkness.

From December 15 until 28 January, the Zoo ticket office will be open from 10:00 until 19:00, and the Zoo itself will remain accessible to visitors until 21:00, with the exception of December 24th and 31st.

Tickets will be cheaper from the hours of 16:00 until 19:00 too, at just 2 euros for adults and children alike. Senior citizens and children under 4 years of age enter for free.

So if you happen to be in Riga for a winter break from overseas, Tram number 11 will take you from the center of Riga right to the gates of the Zoo itself.

"Winter nights at the Zoo are a great opportunity to spend an hour in the fresh air watching animals both in outdoor and indoor environments," the Zoo says.

December 15 will also see the launch of a new picture book about the animals of Umbria taking place at the Zoo.

More information about the winter season at the Zoo is available here. And remember to wrap up warm, unless nature gave you a fur coat as standard.
