Skopje ZOO, Skopje

(70 reviews on the web)
Zoo / Aquarium
Skopje ZOO has been a subject of much controversy and criticism over the years for the poor treatment of the animals. When the zoo was opened in 1926 it showed only a few animals; today, it is home to nearly 500 creatures. Although the institution is making an effort to improve the living conditions of its inhabitants, animal protection organizations as well as many visitors have reported seeing depressed animals in small, dirty cages. The zoo caters to younger visitors with inexpensive tickets and various offers ranging from pony rides to birthday celebrations. Don't miss the Balkan lynx, a subspecies of the Eurasian lynx and Macedonian national symbol. For Skopje ZOO and beyond, use our Skopje itinerary maker to get the most from your Skopje vacation.

  • The compartments in which animals live.. are just horrible. Instead of happy i went home being sorry for the conditions the animals live in.
  • Amazing zoo, big variety of animal kinds. Huge space and nice gardens
  • Not со big, but a nice one. Relaxed coffee shop inside.
  • Small zoo for an European capital but still very nice place to spend part of a sunny day. Number of animals is not high. Employes are enthusiasts. Price - cheap.
  • Not as big zoo as some other zoos but it's a nice place for taking your kids for a walk and some fun.
