Despite the fact that I am generaly against the ZOO's, as long as they exsist, I appreciate effort to provide animals as good condition as it is possible. This ZOO looks pretty OK in that way...

In the last few years the ZOO renovated and looks really nice especially if visiting with kids. Me and my family visited and had a great time.

Located within Maksimir park, this park is worth a visit especially if there is a kid with you. As a zoo, this does not boast of a large number of species. You can see the Snow Leopard , the Red Panda, the Okapi, China Leopard,...More

The zoo is placed inside a giant park (basically a forest), and the zoo itself is nearly a botanical garden. Very lush and pleasant to walk through. We went on an extremely dead Tuesday, and very cheap (for a US tourist). Good selection of animals,...More
