The safari restaurant offers a wide selection of local ice cream and quick, hot meals. Do not miss the meerkat mansion, and after your visit consider a walk in the woodland behind the zoo.

  • After visiting Ljubljana could not miss a jump at the zoo, really cute, free parking, admission €8 x adults, inside there is a restaurant where you can eat, even though there have been landed, the zoo is large enough, the animals are really cared, everything clean and fixed, I recommend it.

  • It has become almost a must when you go on vacation in Rovinj. Zoo in the world, surely there are some the largest and most beautiful, but when the sea time is "dirty" just find other entertainment, like this.

  • A small but fun Zoo. Also very cheap, €8 per adult and €5 per child, and parking is free. Ask at entrance to the feed times in English, because Slovene is really not to read. The new stay of Tiger and lynx are very animal friendly, thus they are not always immediately visible, but patience is rewarded. And they are expanding even further with new stay for the leopards, deer and elk. The extensions are located on a hill, making a lot of difference in elevation is in the new part. Don't forget the Capricorn, the symbol for Slovenia. Also the Cheetah-run is worth it, but make sure you are there on time, because it is over;-)

  • Well located, fresh air, animals well taken care of and most important for us, most child friendly zoo I have ever seen. It has lots of different playing areas. Every season they have baby pigs, goats and ships that children can cuddle with. Very acceptable prices of entrance and food.
  • ZOO keeps improving and growing mainly because they try to provide more living space for the animals. Great outdoor playgrounds for children.
  • Great, but little zoo. Most suited for kids and less exciting for adults.
  • Ok for families. Some detailes have to be repaired (some old, damaged info points,etc).
  • It's a walk through forest with really cool and original playgrounds, our kid loves it

Where to stay in Ljubljana

One of Europe's smaller capitals, Ljubljana offers fairly limited sleeping options, with most of its three- and four-star hotel rooms concentrated in and around the expensive city center. Travelers on a limited budget can explore the city's hostels, which offer small rooms with access to shared restrooms and common dining areas. If you need more privacy and space, rent an apartment on the outskirts of town, or check into one of the family-run guesthouses near the city's international airport.
