Very neat ZOO, maintained with love. Animals have a lot of space, which is tailored to their needs. This zoo is constantly renewed and expanded. Feeding animals, especially seals, is turned into a real circus show. If you come at the right time, friendly staff will allow you to put a snake around your neck or to fondle the giant... More

Exceeded all expectaions! We were going to go there and spend some time to keep the kids amused, but we ended up staying for two hours. It is very large, and it actually needs time to go around if you want to see all the animals. Truth be told, there is not a great variety of animals to see, but... More

We were really surprised how many animals are in this ZOO. We thought it is smaller. It is nice and very well maintained. And a lot of big animals, too.

Ok so there's no denying some of the enclosures are far too small - in particular the polar bear, lions, tigers and seals - but the animals are well cared for and the place has a great feel. The flip side of small enclosures - leaving out the ethical rights and wrongs - is that you get to see all... More

This place was awful, animals like the lions or even the bulls needs to be feeded more often. The cages are too small, the place is DIRTY and some cages were like a prision for some animals. They can charge a higher fee if they cannot get anymore help for the animals, that might help. Ugly and sad.

I don't like zoos. They are animal prisons. But prisons differ. They can be horrible places where inhabitants are exposed to torture or they can be golden cages. Palic zoo is a golden cage, at least for the most of animals. This is a clean, spacious, well organized and good located zoo. It is placed in the quiet place, out... More
