“Wear good shoes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

A rather small zoo (when judging of things to see) located on a hilly forest area on outskirts of the town (15 min busride). The central part is rather okay, but the farther parts of the zoo are really poorly accesible as there are very steep hills and sort of forest trails to wall to get to the far ends of the area. Actually a bit more of a nature hiking trail than a regular flat zoo.. So better bring good shoes with you and something to drink.

“Some great parts, some sad parts”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Some parts of the zoo are awesome, and it's location is beautiful. Some of the paths are a little step, but that makes them a little quieter and more enjoyable.

Some of the animals are kept in less than perfect conditions, and their cages are a little sad (such as the big cats). However it's not the worst conditions I've seen.

Highlight: watching the wolves get fed!

“It's gets worse every year...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

I visit the ZOO regulary, at least once a year.
And I've noticed that every year there are less and less animals, and more and more stuff on the playground.

I still do recommend the visit, because the ZOO is placed in a wonderful environment! Most "big city" ZOO's are all concrete, and small cages, but this one is really in the middle of nature. You take a nice stroll through the woods and nature, admiring the animals.

“Worth visiting with kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

We had a great time with our kids who were relieved to see animals and play on the many, many playgrounds. It was worth the taxi ride out (probably the best way to get out there). Trampolines in the ground--a great idea! Not sure about the previous review, but when we were there on a Sunday in March there was a great restaurant that served food and drinks. We had cevapcici and (alcoholic) cider; families were getting cakes and ice cream. We had a great time.
