Zagreb Zoo, Zagreb

4.1
#3 of 16 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.

  • The Zagreb Zoo contains a wide variety of animals. A beautiful park, but some enclosures are not big enough, which is why I may be not the best assessment

  • Zagreb ZOO was always a nice place to spend a day with family and kids, but after renovation it became amazing. Lions nest is the biggest attraction. It looks like Lion king could be filmed there.  more »
  • For kids this is a great place to visit, specially during the summer time, must try to go back during the summer  more »

  • They really improved some of the animal habitats, but some are still small and sad to look at. I hope they will also get better. The space is nice, the price of the ticket is okay. The best part was the feeding time,you can learn a lot from the zoo keepers stories.
  • Opened in 1925, newly redone, there ere only few star animals, but the ones in there are in great shape. There is a lot of entertainment and educational stuff for kids. Benches are all designer works. 10 minutes from the main square by tram, located within the city park, it's so shady and cooling in the summer months. You'll need an hour and a half to see it all. There's a snack bar on site.
  • It's January so it's not very crowded. Decent sized zoo. It was pretty cold outside, so some animals weren't in their outdoor habitats. Got quite close to some animals, which seemed pretty inquisitive. Overall my small group had a blast!
  • Nice Zoo. Lot of animals. I'm visiting it once per year and there is always something new. Often, educational workshops are held. My niece love it
  • Ticket prices are good, especially when considering that you can spend a few active hours in the ZOO. Animals seem to be well treated and taken care of, with habitats suited for their needs. There is a great diversity of animals, with only tigers missing. The educational aspect of the ZOO is also good.
