About 200 animal species live in the zoo in Uście nad Labem (Ústi nad Labem). He is famous for breeding the Nambian zebra. The founder of the first park in this area - Lumpe built an artificial cave here, which has survived to this day and is called the "Dwarf Castle".
The beginnings of the garden date back to 1908, when the Czech amateur ornithologist Heinrich Lumpe created the "Lumpepark" bird sanctuary. The zoo in its present form was opened in the 1950s.
At the beginning of the 20th century, Heinrich Lumpe bought an area of 3.5 ha, a reserve was created in which the birds were not transported in cages, they lived in the wild, they created excellent nesting conditions here.
After the war and the death of Lumpe, Sady Edvard Beneš was established here, then in the 1950s the first cages and paddocks were erected, the area was turned into a zoo. In 1989, the garden became the scene of the film "Two People at the Zoo". Thanks to him, the main animal actor - orangutan Niuniak became famous.
