  • However, you can expect here not the variety of animals one is otherwise used in zoos. For this, the attendance figures are too low, in that it can finance itself. However, there is the Zoo in a very, very beautiful natural green area. Never I saw lap a so beautiful, peaceful stream in a zoo. It was also a pleasure to watch the schoolchildren are hilarious. Bottom line: not the most spectacular but still worthy of support, so that he remains intact and in better times can offer more.

  • This zoo is rather old and small. To be honest, I felt a bit uneasy about some of the animals (monkeys, for example) because their living spaces were tiny and unkempt. The lions have a nice, new enclo...  more »
  • Okay, not a zoo in our opinion. Mixture of very good playground and animal park. We were childless in 1.5 hours. Very very moderate price: 3KM for adults. Usually very large animal enclosures and "humanely". Sure nice for families with children.

Where to stay in Sarajevo

Although a compact city, Sarajevo offers a wide range of accommodations. Staying in Bascarsija (the old bazaar area) offers proximity to the most popular tourist attractions, long-established restaurants, and charming teahouses. Staying close to the activity won't cost a fortune in this fairly inexpensive town, and it is surprisingly peaceful late at night. You can choose from a number of historical hotels, but those travelling on a budget may prefer a private or dorm room in one of the many hostels. Modern establishments, which can have more reliable facilities, are mostly in the outskirts.
