For me as a zoo freak the visit to the Belgrade zoo was very interesting. Because it is a kind of zoo that existed everywhere in the world about 75 years ago. But shouldn't exist anymore!!! Enclosures are far too small and bare (no possibility for animals to hide), stone and cement floors everywhere, often only one specimen of social... More

we were outside the zoo and we didn't even dare going in due to the very bad smell. generally we don't recommand it unless you're children insist going in.

Whilst my 4 year old loved the experience and seeing animals up close, my husband and I were totally depressed after the visit. Animals in small concrete cages, a lonely elephant being fed packets of chips by uneducated visitors, a lion in a concrete cage, bears in tiny concrete enclosures - kalemegdan fortress is an absurd location for a zoo...

The Belgrade Good Hope garden (Serbian:Београдски врт добре наде / Beogradski vrt dobre nade) is a zoo located in Belgrade, Serbia.

For somebody who doesn't agree with animal cruelty this is bot a good place. Animals are in small cages. They don't look happy. It is interesting to kids and there is a good variety of animals but it is painful to see them like this.

The zoo appears deceptively small from the outside but has a wide variety of animals including big cats, an elephant and some primates. Unfortunately I have to agree with the other reviewers that the animals generally look very sad and bored and the enclosures are small. The primates are kept inside and alone, which is horrible for sociable animals. They... More

It's a good zoo, a nice variety of animals. But the zoo is not well-structured; that is, there are not many directions guiding you about what route or path to take to see all the sevtions and animals in the course of your entire visit. Also, some cages or sections do not contain any information in English about the animal/s... More

On the beginning place seems ok, but when you enter, you will immediately get unpleasant smell in ypur nose. Its dirty, almost abandoned place. Some cages looks old like zoo (80 years). Otherwise, they have lot of different animals and for kids is absolutely nice.

The zoo seems not very rich from the outside. I was positively surprised for the amount and diversity of species when I visited. It has to be noted that the space for some animals are not large enough. In the zoo there is no other place except a modest cafeteria to rest. Go in the late afternoon when they feed... More

We went because my young daughter loves animals. At first the zoo seemed nice and the small animals have nice areas for them to roam, but once you get to the larger animals everything changes. There are 2 large hippos in a tiny water tank that can barely turn around. The anaconda snake in the reptile area has to stay... More
