  • Felt sorry for the animals living at the zoo. The first animal I saw, a bear, looked so tired and old it was impossible not to feel bad for it. I want to clarify I have no idea how they treat the anim...  more »
  • Do 1 star because I can not give 0. This is the worst zoo ever seen on the face of the Earth. The animals are left without water and are weak and malnourished, especially big ones. That poor rhino had closed off within a few meters and turned on itself for hours without being able to enter. The Hippo swam in manure. The elephant had his back full of scabs. The Cougars had an eye putrified. The bear had an air gutted. In addition the zoo was filthy and had very few dining options, and in addition was lost. I think it is not fair to suffer in this way animals. You should shut them down!

  • Utter degradation! Very large Zoo with several animals, most of which kept disgustingly. The environments are not suitable, there's concrete and some plant grown spontaneously. Bears with the tubs without water, the Panther was kept in a locked behind bars, the Leopard had dead eyes (always indoors in a very close), the elephant was dirty, the rhino had been shut out in a tiny space under the Sun and without food or water was a circle, the Hippo bath was a cesspool. The ticket price is very low, 4 Lev (€2), and justifies the smut you will encounter. If I can give you advice avoid going there and especially to take us kids. Do a star because of less can't do!
