“For a small Zoo this one has lots to offer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Set in the beautiful Maximir park, one of the oldest Zoos still has much to offer.
The grounds are well kept and there are a lot of shady spots so even nice to walk around mid summer

“Expected more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I expected a lot of this zoo since I heard very good things about it. It wasn't a big disappointment because the park surrounding it is very nice and the walk through the zoo is also nice. I would expect some more animals, some of the cages were so filled with trees it was impossible to see the animal in it.

“Deceptively big”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

For 30 kuna each the zoo is good value for money.

There is a lot to see and I was surprised at how big the zoo was. The selection of animals was amazing.

The only thing that bothered me was the sizes of the enclosures. The lions seem to be getting a bigger enclosure which is currently being built, but the cage they are currently in is way too small. The same goes for most of the animals. The bears and seals definitely need more space. The cheetah did too. All of the animals needed a hell of a lot more space.

Also, none of the descriptions or information cards were in English which was a little disappointing.

Overall it was a good half day. And the park around it is lovely too.

“Renovating Zoo”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

I visited the zoo a few years ago and almost cried when I saw the bear and "cat family" cages. Not much has changed but this year I saw they are building bigger lots for some animals. I hope that this zoo get bigger or just gives the bears and cats to other EU countries that can take care of them in proper conditions. I found the experience yet again depressing and quite sad to see animals in small cages.
