“Good enough for Zagreb”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Since I Visited many zoos, I found this to be fair value for Zagreb city. It's quite large, decent cleanness, being its was hot day in July and everything smells in July anyway, it was bearable to walk around. Some cages had only one animal... But I Guess that's what they have...well organized, so you don't go around in same circle like in some zoos.

“As cheap as sad”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

After reading some reviews, we dared to visit the zoo, but on Monday, since the ticket costs 20kn.
We found different environements, not all of them well prepared to host animals, though. I'm not saying that the zoo was a horrible place for the animals, but some of them were living alone or in a reduced space.
It is true, that the zoo is being improved with new places for the animals and I wishif they had all been completed. I'm sure that I'd have enjoyed every single minute in the zoo.

“Impressive zoo!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Firstly I'm quite surprised by the negative reviews regarding this zoo. When I visited it was really clean and the zoo was well maintained. It was actually bigger than I thought and in terms of cage size, the only smallish cage was where the jaguars were kept but certainly not as severe as other European zoos. The various types of animals at this zoo made the trip more worthwhile and the price (with a Zagreb travel card) was the equivalent of 2 euros so its certainly one of (if not) the cheapest zoo in Europe.

I recommend visiting this zoo and you won't be disappointed, some of the animals were beautiful!

In many ways Zoos are depressing, particularly for large animals locked up in spaces far too small and this zoo is no exception. Having said that efforts are being made to provide more suitable spaces with work well underway.

It's not up to the class of Berlin or Western Plains but it isn't among the worst zoos I have visited.

We walked from the centre of town and back again in the rain which is an experience in itself.
