This zoo is the only one in Slovenia and has a great array of animals in it. The entrance price is reasonable an the park is clean. The walk from the centre of Ljubljana is an enjoyable one with good signage and wide paths.

Small but cute. Great place to visit with kids, not far from the city centre, wide selection of animals.

The zoo itself is compact and well designed and a really enjoyable way to spend half a day. We visited the Safari restaurant for a quick lunch and were pleased with both the service and the food. Very decent schnitzel and burger, reasonably priced and served with a smile. Recommended.

The elephant is a bit sad (they tried to match him up, but he is a grumpy guy) and I never know why small zoo's try to keep wild cats and others that need more space, but for the rest it is really lovely. Catch the seal show, the meerkat mansion and the cute, cute monkeys, but mostly, come on... More

Not too much to offer on the animal scale, but decent and not expensive to enter. However, there were built in trampolines and playgrounds/jungle gyms. These are things kids will all love, even some 'adults' will enjoy it (;

Ljubljana zoo is a 30-40min walk from the centre of town. It was a nice way to spend a few hours and entry was cheap. It's pretty small so you can easily go around the zoo in under 2hours, probably not a whole day out. Most of the animals have good sized cages, but the leopard, lynx, chimps and bears... More

The local Zoo isn't very big but is lovely. At the entrance we've got sheet with animal feeding schedule which was very helpful. All staff is english speaking and probably they can speak also italian and german language because it is common here. Restaurant serves good selection of warm fast meals and they offer also wide range of local ice... More

The pens of the animals were very spacious, all looked relaxed and happy. Staff were more than happy to spend time talking to you about certain animals - not just the big attractions such as the tigers, but the porcupines etc. Almost every animal had a friend in its enclosure and if there are any complaints about how it is...
