    Beautiful white lions, adorable kangaroos, birds galore, lots of different mammals, and definitely affordable for a family. Enjoyed the canteen. Will visit again.  more »

    Mediocre, animals were not in good condition to say the least, park not clean enough. Not recommended for visit more than once.  more »

    Good value for money. Excellent for children. Animals well looked after, better than most zoos even though large animals of prey probably require more space to run around  more »

    Best animal abuse center you can find. Well done.

    "From the news on the web: Melios Pet Centre and Zoo outside Nicosia has led the way in exploiting these legal loopholes much to the dismay of animal welfare groups which have raised concerns over the living conditions and treatment of the animals there. In recent years, the owner Melios Menelaou has clashed repeatedly with the vet services but they have been unable to prevent him from importing a wide range of animals including tigers, lions and lynxes." AWFUL ANIMALS SHOULD BE RESCUED AND ZOO SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN

    Great experience. Recommended for all ages. Many sitting areas, quiet and most birds and animals can be touched so experience is beyond what you can achieve in a normal zoo.

    Poor animals. A true HELL in Ag. Trimithias. WILD ANIMALS IN TINY CAGES. Wild animals need to run but is no secret that there, this is not allowed. Also many of them look unhealthy and the officials don't care.

    Awesome zoo with focus on exotic birds. Kids loved it, we've spent half a day here.

Where to stay in Nicosia

Despite being the country's capital, Nicosia is not as geared toward tourists as the resorts on Cyprus' sunny coast. Hotels tend to be geared toward business travelers but provide a comfortable stay. Renting a vacation apartment may be preferable option for many, as they enable you to live more like locals. The greater Nicosia area spreads far and wide, so stay near the old city to access the most popular attractions, bars, and restaurants on foot. For an economical option, look for lodging on the north side of the city.
