  • The Belgrade zoo is not a large site by what pretty quickly you can see all the animals. It is also minus because some do not have too much space. Same object requires certainly a lot of repairs, you can see that something is changing, but still a lot is to be done. Very low entrance fee, only 400RSD per adult and 300 RSD per child. To see by the way you visit Kalemegdanu.

  • It is located in the surroundings of the Castle and it is a zoo with several animals from around the world. The fare is very cheap and is a must for walk for both small and large! I will suggest that if you have free time.

  • In rule general I dislike zoos, but driven by a friend, we decided to visit the zoo in Belgrade. Our first surprise was to see goats, donkeys, deer and bison in too small pens and on hard ground (concrete or paved). We pointing then to the vivarium, we found the snakes and other reptiles were kept in too small cages in glass and in which the reproduction of their natural habitat was anything but natural (leaves, grass, and branches in plastic). Then, the monkeys are also locked in cages too small and no lights of the day! Not even talking of the jaguar which was 100 not in his shabby enclosure! Same for the lions and lionesses, reindeer also. The icing on the cake was that bear in a cage of 2 meters square which we watched we slashed the heart. At no time during our visit we saw a healer or someone responsible for the maintenance of the animals and the site. People give them to eat and nobody say nothing! Dismal condition, do not give money to this zoo which is a prison for animals!

  • Horrendous. This derelict zoo should be closed down. It's pure cruelty and animal abuse, from raptors birds confined in tiny dirty cages to a half blind seal paddling in few inches of green water not to mention the trotting demented pony, the hippos barely fitting in their muddy pool or the sadly drifting crocodile. This zoo is an inhumane ordeal. Shame on whoever are in charge.
  • This zoo is HORRIFYING. TERRIBLE to its animals and should be shut down!!!! This is insane that they can even be called a Zoo. Zoos are meant to preserve these SACRED animals. These people are cruel and heartless. Anybody who loves animals should never spend a single dollar at this zoo. They need to sell their animals to SAFE zoos if they can not take care of them. They abuse their animals hygienically and need to provide proper care. I hope people protest their mistreatment of animals. ANY REVIEW ON HERE THAT SAYS THIS PLACE IS EVEN HALF DECENT IS LYING
  • I'm so disgusted by this zoo! I never believe animals should be kept for anyone's entertainment, especially when they're abused. I saw nothing but cruelty! How evil can this zoo be? It needs to be shut down! They only care for profit and let those poor animals suffer! Disgusting evil human beings! Those animals look so broken down because of sick inviduals caring more about money they earn! Please stay away!! 😖😔
  • Pictures of your polar bear suffering from filthy conditions, having to dwell next to a cesspool instead of a pond and suffering from an obvious neurological ailment whilst soiling himself are shocking and inhumane. Trying to call Belgrade Zoo - no answer. This should be regulated by the EU. If this is how Serbia treats animals-stay out! Whoever is responsible for this abomination and those many more inflicted on poor, sentient beings should be held responsible to the last. Here's looking at you.
  • Nice l interesting enviroment, relaxing, clean, good fun for youngs and older.
