Liberec is famous for its Zoo! The zoo is home to white tigers (Bílí Tygři), a rare sight indeed. In fact, they have become the emblems of our ice hockey team.
The zoological center is one of the must-see activities if you’re visiting the north of the Czech Republic. That’s why, in the rest of this article, we’ll tell you absolutely everything you need to know about Liberec Zoo.
