Walk through ZOO Brno
following ciphers and logical tasks!

Charles Darwin had no idea that genes or DNA existed. It was Johann Gregor Mendel, the most famous person of Brno, who discovered the basic laws of genetics. It is therefore no wonder that the Brno Zoo was inspired by his legacy and gradually presents the most interesting moments of evolution in its area. It was genetics that revealed other laws that apply in nature. Who is the ancestor of sea lion? Why does a zebra have stripes? And a giraffe’s long neck?

Embark on an encrypted trail through the Brno Zoo and enjoy the amazing sophistication of nature.
