  • I went to the zoo with the idea of a good time seeing various animals. But the animals in this zoo surely will not give you the smile: their cages are too small, shabby, dirty... They are sometimes only in their small cage and bored to death, their only occupation is to try to run away. Despite signs forbidding to feed the animals, ponies were given a few apples and it was the slightest of things! They had mud up to their knees, no straw in their box... Do not go there and contribute to the longevity of this zoo, the animals deserve better than that! (part of the enclosure was empty: no elephant, rhinoceros, hippopotamus, Hyena, Lion, Zebra...) The calm of the zoo, these animals should not be inside the closed buildings, I don't know what they've become...)

  • Just horrible! The Park seems abandoned as pets, cages are very small, very old and their are probably not suitable. The animals that we have lived in horrible conditions, the ground is covered with their droppings. We did not want to finish the visit so we had hard time to see this whole mess. It would be time to send the animals and to renovate all at the risk of worsening their situation. Many of them turn around in their cage. I highly recommend it!

  • Looks like the saddest place in the world; Apes in very small cages, most definite wallow action animals in urine and feces, water tanks, filled with stench and potable, not everybody has a shady plot, the eyes of everyone without exception look sad and longing, begging to be saved, someone will do something, "SPCA" invented this zoo. ,

Where to stay in Sofia

Set yourself up for easy and convenient access to Sofia's historical core and its most popular tourist sites by staying in an upscale hotel in the city center. While you'll find some hotels on the main boulevard, look for modern hotels off the main streets to keep costs lower. Staying outside the center in the outlying neighborhoods means you'll need to use public transportation, but the network is extensive and accommodation prices farther out are lower. For a real budget-friendly option, consider staying in a hostel; the city boasts a wide array of these, many of which include breakfast.
