    There are no other parks in Russia or across the continent of Europe similar to Crimea’s Taigan Safari Park. Take a look at the exotic wildlife haven surrounded by the Crimean Mountains in Sputnik’s photo gallery.

    Taigan Safari Park, located in Belogorsky district of Crimea on the shore of the picturesque Taigan reservoir, is Europe's largest nursery for big cats such as lions and tigers, and other animal species, mostly large mammals. It occupies more than 32 hectares, and besides the big cat park, visitors can also visit a regular zoo and a children's zoo.
