This zoo is Scandinavia’s largest, with some 750 residents from all climates and continents. There is a safari park, marine world and tiger world, plus dolphin shows and a separate superb Tropicarium with its motley crew of spiders, sharks, alligators and snakes.
You’ll need a whole day to fully appreciate the zoo. Kolmården lies 35km north of Norrköping, on the north shore of Bråviken. Take bus 432 or 433 from Norrköping (Skr80, 40 minutes).
