Zakynthos attracts tourists with children with a lot of beautiful beaches and tourist hotels, but you can’t limit the popular resort to just the beach. On the island, there is an original zoo Askos Stone Park. The main feature of this park is the abundance of natural stone formations. A striking contrast to the stone landscapes are the dense pine forests. In this park, there are beautiful deer and fallow deer that walk completely freely in their territory.
