The zoo is limiting daily visitor numbers to 2,500 and all ticket sales will take place online. Indoor areas will be closed to visitors and no presentations that draw crowds will take place, the zoo said.

The zoo, one of the oldest in the world, usually draws around one million visitors a year.

It was allowed to re-open under a government decree, in force from Monday, lifting a number of restrictions in the capital.
