The as-yet-unnamed tigers, a male and female, weigh about 1.5 kg each.
The cats are still being bottle-fed by the staff of the zoo.
Their mother, for whom this was her first birth, did not suckle the cubs, the head of the zoo, Andrzej Pabich, said. All three tigers are healthy, however.
A competition will be organised shortly to find names for the two cubs.
White animals are becoming the calling card of the zoo, which already has seen the birth of two white lion cubs.
The Zoo Safari in Borysew covers an area of approximately 22 hectares, and houses animals from six continents. These include polar wolves, alpaca, mandrills, giraffes, puma, monkeys, water buffalo, tapirs, zebras, kangaroos, as well as seals. (rg)
