In the title complex, [Zn(C10H6N3O2)2(H2O)4], the ZnII ion lies on an inversion center and is coordinated in a slightly distorted octa­hedral geometry by two N atoms from two 2-(pyridin-4-yl)pyrimidine-5-carboxyl­ate ligands and four water mol­ecules. In the symmetry-unique part of the mol­ecule, the pyridine and pyrimidine rings form a dihedral angle of 7.0 (1)°. In the crystal, the coordinating water mol­ecules act as donor groups and carboxyl­ate O atoms act as acceptors in O-H...O hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional network.
