"Millionth" visitor at Prague Zoo: family of three

Members of a family of three visiting the Prague Zoo on Friday were surprised to find themselves the millionth visitors at the zoo in 2006. It is only the second time in the zoo's 75-year-history that the rate of visitors has hit that number. The family - a young married couple and their three-year-old son - was awarded a number of prizes and a special tour. Last year, the zoo saw its highest attendance ever: 1.2 million. Organisers hope to reach 1.1 million this year.
