But all the same it is remarkable because of its beautiful interior and the changing of the guards every day at 11:55.


Prince Rainier III founded the zoological park in 1954 after he had been to Africa. It is not a zoo in the traditional sense, but rather a bunch of authentic animal communities that are meant to create a more home like environment for the animals. Therefore these areas have several animal and plant species from the African continent.
