We are the proud GENERAL PARTNER of the
Ostrava Zoological Garden and Botanical Park

On the partner

The Ostrava Zoological Garden and Botanical Park was founded in 1951. It is the second largest zoological garden in the Czech Republic and has developed massively in recent years. On some 100 hectares, it currently keeps more than 4,000 animals of 435 different species. Besides keeping and breeding rare and endangered animal species, the Ostrava Zoo also grows plants. There is no question that its siting in the natural locality of the Great Ostrava Forest predestined the Ostrava Zoo to a botanical direction too. The premises offer three botanical paths, The Path of Water, The Path of Shade, and The Path of Forest with a total length of almost 6 km, and a Rhododendron Park featuring one of Europe’s largest collections of rhododendrons and azaleas.

We support

Environmental protection is one of our key interests. Following Prague Zoo we decided to support one more zoological garden, specifically the Ostrava Zoological Garden and Botanical Park. Besides protecting fauna and flora from various parts of the world the Ostrava Zoo also focuses on our nature and our closest environment. They actively help to protect the natural environment in the Moravian-Silesian Region, thereby inspiring the public: an activity that we at Komerční banka will be happy to continue to support.
