🍄”Although we didn't actually visit the zoo, we did go on the Ferris wheel close to the entrance. This was reasonably priced at €6 for an adult. The Ferris wheel went very high and gave great views over the city including into the zoo where we could see the flamingoes, and of the amazing central station.”🍄
