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/

Ljubljana city zoo is family friendly with variety of activities. Guided tours for different age groups. Special events with different animals. Birthday parties for children. Sunday family visit is a traditional activity.

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.

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
