The area where the animals were kept were pretty decently big. Many types of animals and the zoo was like a never ending park. Cute animals and a really nice place if you want to go on a long walk with your kids.

This is the largest zoo in the country. It is very well kept, in a huge area, in which you can find a big playground, skating area, picnic tables, running track, hiking trails. If you have small children take the carriers at the entrance of the zoo. Entrance fee is only symbolic

It is a nice place to spend a few hours. Compared to Sibiu zoo is much better. The animals look better and Mures has more animals. Clean and nice. Also they have an impressive playground for kids. Thumbs up! Downside: if the weather is good, it will be difficult to find parking.

I live in Târgu Mures and I am really proud to have in my city such a beautiful and large zoo. I've seen other zoo's in Europe and I can honestly say this is probably one of the best I've seen.

This zoo is well equipped and its really nice to make a walk around in it. It takes about an hour if you keep walking. The place is quite big and they have quite a lot of animals. The entrance fee is next to nothing, about 1.5 euro or even less. Good for kids, couples, families or even a bunch... More

We live in Africa, so seeing animals in cages is always a bit of challenge. Nevertheless we visited the zoo with our relatives from TM hoping to have a funfun outing withwith the kids. I visited serval zoos, but I found the spaces and cages in which the animals were kept extremely small and not at all appropriate.

One of the most interesting experiences, visiting one of the nicest zoo in Romania. The animals are well treated, the location is very well suited for this, the shelterst, cages and all closed spaces are modern and well prepared.
