Discover the attractions of Lake Malta in Poznań.
The "Maltanka" Park Railway"
The route of the park railway of approximately 3.8 km runs along the northern bank of Lake Malta, reaching the New Zoo. The railway runs every day, late April through late September. On some weekends the train is pulled by a historical 1925 Borsing steam locomotive (also referred to as Agusia). To make it possible for the first train to depart at 10:00 a.m., the steam locomotive needs to be started at 2:30 a.m.
The New Zoo occupies 117 ha of a beautiful, naturally diverse area, located on the so-called White Mountain. The central valley is covered with ponds of the total area of 16 ha. Whenever possible, animals are presented on extensive runs, on which their living conditions have been created to imitate the natural ones. Predatory birds, represented by over 12 species, are particularly noteworthy.
Moreover, the Zoo boasts animals rarely shown in Polish zoos, such as Siberian tigers or white rhinoceros. Since 2009 visitors have been able to visit a modern elephant house, in which African elephants live. In 2014 a sanctuary for brown bears was opened. The Zoo can be reached by the “Maltanka” railway, which constitutes an additional attraction, particularly for children.
