It is a nice place to spend a day - but mostly for the families and children. The zoo is well kept, quite interesting and there are lots of places to sit down and rest a bit. Best of all (during the summer) there's a lot of shadow, playing grounds... There are some opportunities for a special visit- like night... More

Nice and small with lots of animals, recent renovation made it possible for visitors to see animals from up close. It's a nice walk from the city center.

After reading last few reviews I was wondering if it's really in so bad condition.. Then...entrance fee is quite normal I think (but really, the ZOO is not as big as some others around Europe). Children up to 2 years are free of charge, adults pays 8€/person. Easily acessible from the highway - 2 minutes from highway and you are... More

If you are a fan of zoo's you should not expect too much when visiting this one. It is not big but they do have a lot of animals. This means you will see a lot but the animals will suffer on this account. I think a remodel is well over due. With the prices they charge they should be... More

Used to go to this ZOO as a kid quite often. But even since a young age I thought that the cages for the animals are just too small (the big cats cages, elephant cage, etc.) and hoped that it would get better in the future, which of course never happened. There used to be really cute shows with the... More

I visited ZOO Ljubljana just few weeks ago with my brother and his 6yo son. My last visit was when I was like 17 or 18...so that's like 20 years ago. Since then this became one of really nice and good place to take your family or friends. Even a nice restaurant inside and a huge place to play for... More

The zoo is small, but very well maintained. The ticket costs 8 euros. A lot of animals such as giraffe, tigers, panda, kangaroo, etc. Good to visit with family or kids or if you love watching the animals.

This zoo is small compared to others I've been to but it's very charming. I was lucky enough to be there on a day when the animals were particularly playful. I wrote a longer review on a blog, if you're interested: http://www.ilovejourneys.com/visiting-the-ljubljana-zoo/
