Zagreb Zoo, Zagreb

(4.1/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Zagreb ZOO is quiet small but nice place for afternoon walk. Maybe the navigation signs to the ZOO could be better. We had problems to find way to the parking place. Many animals weren't in their area...  more »

  • Don't expect too much from Zagreb ZOO because you'll be disapointed. ZOO is very small, very green (in spring and summer) and new buildings look very good, so it could be said that is cute and it is n...  more »

  • Fairly large area with lots of greenery. Not the best signposts and guidelines to find your way around for someone who is there for the first time. Some parts of the zoo are not fully functional or kept in the best way.
  • zoo was under major renovation and there are less animals to see in 2016 year end. probably will be better in 2017 year end
  • Perfect spot to spend a good educational day with your child.
  • Nice Zoo with nice educational programs and always trying to improve their presentation. Always fun to visit with kids.
  • Great petting zoo. Recently renovated.
