Last Sunday we spent a few hours at the zoo in Thessaloniki. It's located on "Kedrinos Lofos" at the top of the city. The weather was so mild and beautiful that we had to get out and enjoy it. I remembered to wear appropriate shoes this time as well. The first time that I visited the zoo last spring, I wore boots with heels and suffered because this zoo is located on a hill and there are steep pathways and stairs throughout. .
The kids love the zoo because of its many paths and bridges.
We enjoyed watching ducks swim in ponds.
There are open green spaces that the kids loved to run through.
I love the stone walkways that wind through the zoo. Very pretty.
Alexandra was enthralled by the sight of deer.
Izabella always talks to the animals.
"Don't Feed the Animals"
Although these signs are present, very few zoo visitors pay attention to them. I saw people feeding animals popcorn, bread and chocolate filled croissants. What a shame.
A wolf. The fencing made it a bit difficult to get a good photo.
The girls interacting with a rooster.
This zoo is really a gorgeous park. We love all of the creeks that run through it.
Looking down at one of the bridges.
A family enjoying the view of a duck pond.
There are two bears at the zoo...here's one.
Again, Izabella loves animals. She was letting this deer lick her hands.
On our way out...
we were really hungry and a little tired from walking up and down the hill for well over an hour.
Outside of the zoo they have amusements and toys for sale, like anywhere that attracts families. We managed to get away without spending money on any of these frills. It wasn't easy but we did!
After the leaving the zoo, we went out for pizza. It was the perfect way to end our outing.
