Zagreb Zoo, Zagreb

4.1
#3 of 12 in Zoos & Aquariums in Croatia
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Inside one of the city's main parks, Zagreb Zoo houses exotic animals. Set on 7 hectares (17 acres) of parkland and a network of lakes, the zoo contains more than 2,200 animals. Keep an eye out for some of the zoo's rarer residents, including the oryx, okapi, Bactrian camel, and the highly endangered snow leopard. Be sure to check the zoo's online schedule of events for information about temporary exhibits and special activities. This zoo opened in 1925, so some of the enclosures are a bit dated. Using our world travel planner, Zagreb attractions like Zagreb Zoo can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Where to stay in Zagreb

Lodging in Croatia's capital Zagreb maintains a high standard, with many centrally located hotels offering significant weekend discounts on their finest rooms. Hostels remain the most affordable option for budget-minded travelers visiting for a day or two, providing small but neat rooms only steps away from the city's most popular bars, clubs, and restaurants. For something a bit quieter, look for self-catering apartments and guesthouses in the city's residential neighborhoods, where you can park for free and get a good night's sleep.

  • Well,they said it was one of the best zoos in Europe and maybe they meant animal friendly??? didn't see elephants or lions, tigers, etc. Don;t get me wrong....it was nice and worth it to see the Park ...  more »

  • I like how they updated the zoo, but still, wish they offered more inside the park than just the animals and animal shows. Like better food and drinks. This is a common problem with smaller zoos. Prob...  more »

  • I visit this place from time to time. In 2016 they started building new places and in 2017 you can see phase one results. Very nice. I love it especially as mow you can get in touch with lemurs and observe birds more closely. My only complain is main restaurant and staff which seems to be a bit lost.
  • A small zoo but very good for kids, good maintenance. There is a section for kinds with domestic and very friendly goats, sheep and pig (farm experience). In addition its in Maksimir park where after zoo visit you can enjoy picnic with family and friends.
  • Beautiful place I often go to see. It has been reconstructed few months ago. It has a place just for kids. Definitly a place worth to see. Also, it has a restaurant with great food.
  • It is nice because it is in forest, and when you see all animals, you can walk near one small lake and through this forest. ZOO is not very big, but it has most relevant animals. Now don't have elephants and giraffe. Now being renovated.
  • Nice place to walk. Good park. Well maintained zoo. Variety of animals and birds.
