Proper environment for the animals here, varied species and environment setups. A bit tricky to find without GPS if you do not know the area, but nothing to complicated.

As the title says this is an really quiet place and far from the city noise and agitation. The fee is under 1 euro/adult & 0.50 euro/child. You can see birds, rabbits, goats, reindeers, bears, wild cats, raccoons, peacocks, ostriches, ponies, monkeys, ducks, swans, and many more. Just go and have a nice time with the family.

In Zoo Timisoara you will not find a large variety of animals,you will not find animals of the savannah, just common animals...bears, ponies, birds, peacocks and many domestic animals. More resembles a nature park... The entry is cheap.

It is a nice place to walk with your children, unfortunately it does not have many animals, but it is very cheap, it also has a playground at the entrance

Its only 5 lei to go as 2 adults with one child. The Zoo isnt as bad as most others ive been to in Eastern Europe... the animals all look ok and fed. however it is a bit gloomy, the pens are quite small but we took our nephew (4 years old) who was entertained for a couple of hours.

The Zoo is nice, but average. It is good to take your children for the locals, but doesn't offer nothing spectacular for tourists. There is no entrance fee, but there is a box for donations for care of the animals.

I was several year ago in the zoo and it was really awful. I decided to give another change after i heard that some changes was made. the most interesting there are the bears. with small children you might spend some time but it still need more investments.

In case you are not local or you are not in the situation to show some animals to your kids, I would not recommend to travel there. But, in case you are in summer time and there are 40C outside then it might be a good place where you can hide.

You can see chicken, goats and rabbits here. No wild animals except of two lonely bears. Better spend your time elsewhere.
