Elistvere Animal Park (for at least the 4th time)

Nineteen days left until my first vacation this year and twenty one days left till our Prague voyage, so I'm pretty sure meanwhile I can keep my head above water. But to ease my still slightly agonizing wait, I and E. visited Elistvere Animal Park on May Day (previous visits with more photos here, here and here). Elistvere Animal Park is situated in central Estonia and was established in 1997 as an animal shelter: wild animals with injuries were brought there to be healed and held in the most natural environment possible.

From the photos taken by me this time you can see a degu (Octodon degus), a pair of foxy foxes (Vulpes vulpes), a striped and adorable wild boar's piglet, a sleepy lynx (Lynx lynx), a pine marten named Nuki and a brown bear named Karuliina. If you're interested in more knowledge, do check out their homepage! I and E. both love the place and obviously this is the main reason for our repetitious visits.


By the way, we would also like to visit Prague Zoo which was opened already in 1931 and recently presented their new logo. The logo contains colourful footprints of an amphibian, a reptile, a bird and two mammals - a beast and an ungulate. They also opened an educational Geotrail, so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing absolutely everything and I'm sure E. wants to observe all the lizards existing there.
Anyhow, I hope you, my readers, like animals as much as I do and you enjoy my photos as well. Of course be sure to let me know how do you feel about zoos and animal parks?


I was wearing: denim jacket - Lee Cooper /thrifted/; under-top - /thrifted/; pearls - /thrifted/; belt - Diesel; pants - PHARD coolture; loafers - Alexandria /thrifted/; sunnies - Prada; bag - Guess.

  1. Lovely post of cute animals :) I'd love to go to some animal park. We have Korkeasaari and Ähtäri for example.
    Your outfit is really nice aswell, the colour of jeans looks gorgeous on you.

    Thank you for the comments dear. My mum gave me some ideas for shopping etc. in Prague for you (she's the sweetest!), I'll do a post soon if I have time - or then just write them down for you. :)

    Have a sunny lovely day tomorrow! ^^

  8. LOVE the outfit! The lavender jean jacket and pink jeans are amazing. I hate going to the zoo because it always rains and then it SMELLS! But I do like the idea of the animal shelter, I am not sure if we have anything like that in the city...but it is a great cause.

  11. Looks like a great day was had! Just curious, is the park still for injured animals these days (I guess I could click on one of your links and read for myself...ha ha)? One of my favorite zoos that I visited was the San Diego Zoo in California. I could spend days there!! I'm BEYOND jealous of your trip to Prague...take lots of pictures for those of us that haven't been there yet. Oh, and great loafers too! :) Amanda

  35. Oh! all these little ones are amazing! So cute and I always have an urge to cuddle with such cutie-pies!:) Though I'm not the biggest fan of zoo's...somewho it always looks sad. I remember once an hysterical little monster (kid) started to screen and shout that loud that the poor tiger went nuts. I seriously saw the horror and incomprehension in the animal's eyes. So no, no Zoo's for me. But in any case have fun!:)
    And your outfit is very springish and bright!

  38. I find zoo's fascinating, but we barely visit.
    As for your question. I do think that you have
    to like Lauren Conrad to buy the book. It's also
    full of useful tips & tricks. So, to be honest
    I'm not really sure.

  42. what chic outfit for a day at the zoo, you are probably the best looking visitor there...I love the pink cropped pants. I like the zoo too as long as the animals are kept humanly and not forced to perform tricks or shows. Beautifully take photos of the animals, the bear picture is especially gorgeous! I am feeling excited about your trip too!
