Skopje ZOO, Skopje

3.6
#5 of 13 in Parks in Republic of Macedonia
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
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.

Where to stay in Skopje

The capital of Macedonia and a city of numerous sights, Skopje offers a good selection of places to stay despite its relatively modest size. Even though most hotels cluster in the center of town, you can easily find accommodation in other neighborhoods too. The selection ranges from several high-end hotels and fully-furnished apartments to many economical but charming places to stay. The city wide selection of hostels, many of which are very close to the city center, appeal to younger travelers.
