Nice place to visit and the thing that is special about this Zoo is the beautiful style of the building objects in it - ceramic tiles of the roofs in color contrasts, as a part of the recognizable and traditional style motifs of Palić and Subotica architecture. Also the paths through the Zoo is well signed, and what I mostly... More

The zoo was undergoing a lot of renovations, but overall a very interesting place to visit if you are around Subotica. Its not very big, but for an hour or two it will provide enough entertainment for anyone who likes the wildlife.

It is a small zoo, with not many variety of species, placed in beautiful surrondings. It's fun not just for kids, but also for those who love being outdoor. Modest, but cheerfull. Mongoose - you must play with them.

Zoo is animal friendly, which is most important for me, meaning that there is enough space for animals, lots of natural surrounding, trees, grass... They have very nice lions trio, kings of zoo. What could be improved... some buildings should be better marked with purpose and contents inside, and also some of the big animals are alone in their cages,... More
