Thousands of visitors came out on Saturday for the official start of Prague Zoo's 83rd season which was launched to the sound of African drums. Members of Prague's respected Dejvice Theatre also performed. The Czech News Agency reported that almost all parking spots on site were taken by 11 AM and that buses to the zoo were often full. In 2013, the popular zoo attracted a total of 1.1 million visitors - roughly the equivalent of the population of Prague.
