Zagreb Zoo, Zagreb

(3.5/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • Strong point is that the Zoo is located in a beautiful park with easy access. But for the animals I imagine is not so pleasant. Too much noise from cars and the city, an avenue passes next to the cell of bears and leopards. Small cells for large animals.

In Zagreb was disappointed and sad for the animals.
