The central entrance to the Moscow Zoo from the Barrikadnaya metro station will be updated, writes the news portal Interfax. The decision to build a new building was made due to the low carrying capacity of the present, which does not ensure quick access to the park on weekends and holidays, when the number of visitors reaches 60 thousand people per day. Construction of a new two-story building will begin in February 2019. It is designed in the style of American avant-garde, the correct form with glass doors and a white facade. The new entrance will house cash registers, souvenir shops and an educational center. It should be noted that, in addition to the entrance, the bridge connecting the old and the new territory of the zoo will be updated.
