Known as one of Europe's oldest zoos, Belgrade Zoo houses some 2,000 animals from 270 species, right in the center of the capital city. Its collection of white lions is one of the largest in the world, and reportedly the oldest alligator known to man lives here. Stretching across 7 hectares (17 acres) of hilly landscaped terrain, the zoo features thematic zones, such as Africa, Australia, and birds of prey. Walk among different habitats and encounter wild and domestic animals of all sizes and shapes. Visit the petting zoo to play with the youngest residents, or buy a bag of peanuts to feed the zoo's elephants. Children can also ride ponies at the site.

  • The Belgrade Zoo has made a wonderful impression. A relatively small territory, but all very conveniently organized. You get a special pleasure in the contact sector, where you can directly communicate with animals. Is where to rest and eat. In General, I recommend a visit.

  • This is an awful depressing place. The cages are tiny and filthy, animals are lifeless - no wonder. Many of the animals are even wounded. I saw some of them bleeding! Terrible place.
  • Well organised, a lot of exotic animals to see, pretty expensive tickets for Serbian standard. It needs to be removed from the city centre and Kalemegdan fortress to the suburbs. Heavy smell around it, especially in the summer.
  • Grat place for kids abd adults. Oasis in the heart of Belgrade :)
  • It's always nice to take a stroll down the lane of memories since I've been coming here ever since I was little. Each year the Zoo is looking better and better.
  • Nice place to escape from the city. Next to Kalemegdan fortress.
