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

Upon entry we received a map and information about the zoo. Well worth the visit; there are so many different animals to see, and the grounds are well maintained and rubbish free. Very enjoyable.

The Zoo is very nice. It has a good variety of animals. Most of the animals live in good conditions with a few excerptions (lynx could have a bigger cage as well as other wild cats, polar bear and some more). Grounds are well maintained, there are few fountains and lots of grass and tries.

Lots of animals, and a very large area. Nice to spend an afternoon at. Try not to visit it when it's 40 degrees Celsius like I did. I almost melted.
