Tucked into the swaying woodlands of Las Wolski, Krakow Zoo roars with lions and swings with chimpanzees. It’s thought that the collection of wild creatures here began life way back in the 15th century, when the Polish king kept a curious menagerie of imported beasts in the grounds of the Wawel Castle. These days, a whopping 260 species can be seen, covering exotic amphibians, hulking jungle mammals, and wild wolf packs.
