The Sankt-Petersburg Zoo opened on August 1 (13) of 1865 as a private menagerie. All historical developments which taken place in our country and city for last 142 years in any event were reflected in its history and even the name…

Many Zoo's visitors asks: "Why after the rename of the city from Leningrad to Sankt-Petersburg the name of the Zoo still remains the same - "Leningradsky Zoo"?

The reason of the old name not had been changed is in commemoration of the former colleagues- blockaders, who worked there during the hard time of the World War II, particularly the time of the blockade of the city of the Leningrad. They were just near the 2 hundred people who saved the animals during the war. Most of the workers were lived in the Zoo to be closer to their nurselings where they met the Victory. 16 of the workers were decorated with medal "For the defence of the Leningrad".
