Jardim Zoológico

In early 1945, then-President Getúlio Vargas inaugurated the Rio Zoo in Quinta da Boa Vista, São Cristóvão, where the green grounds of the former Royal Palace were lined with Imperial Palms and stunning views towards Cristo Redentor's statue. The palms remain, and the boulevards in and around the zoo are a glorious stroll, while the selection of animals on display is equally impressive. Sadly some of the quarters are not quite in keeping with their illustrious guests, and while the elephants have decent roaming ground and the hippos enjoy large swimming pools, the tigers and lions look less than impressed with their respective shacks while the huge variety of monkeys and birds circle their cages frustratedly.
