Zagreb Zoo, Zagreb

4.1
#3 of 12 in Zoos & Aquariums in Croatia
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.

    Just outside the city centre, easily accessible by public transport, within the Maksimir Park is the Zagreb zoo. Admission is 30 kn, but on Monday, the price of the ticket is reduced to 20 kn. The zoo is very large and includes several species of animals and habitat. Some rooms are suitable for animals that are home to others are a little cramped. Turns out to be a pleasant nature walk. The only negative was laancanza by a signposted route to follow, so you are likely to miss the sights or to retrace the same path several times.

    When I was last time at the Zoo, I was surprised with newly built facilities prior to and at the zoo itself is very, very positive! First, the entire Visual is now much higher value, secondly, security for the guests and animals increased in my opinion. Definitely recommended... Not only because I otherwise love to Zagreb!

    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.

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.
