First of all I would like to say that renovation was successful. Animals are mainly inside, as we expected for december but we still enjoyed. The thing that is highly annoying is: it was sunday. Zoo was full of kids and parents. NO place to drink or eat. Restaurant was closed. Only vending machine. On the most busy day in... More

I visited the zoo while it still was rebuilding therefore some animals were not available to visitors. Zoo in Zagreb has a large number of reptiles that are found in several locations. For children organize educational workshops where, the children are introduced to the animals. Currently, the biggest attraction of the zoo are the lion cubs. Unfortunately zoo lacks some... More

this is certainly not a good zoo. and this is when i was told it has been done up newly.only visit if one has nothing else to do.it has a long walk to entrance.its a big disappointment for animal lovers. half the enclosures are empty. hardly anything to eat/drink within the facility.zoo shop is good though.

We were very surprised how good this Zoo is. Al the animals seemed very happy and it was good to see that the Zoo is undergoing renovations. Would like to re-visit in warmer weather.

Excellent grounds in a lovely setting, very cheap at only 30kn per person £3.50 in UK terms. Was a bit upsetting to see some animals extremely stressed/ bored just as the big bear and hippopotamus, and lack of staff looking after the animals was apparent, Also park signage is extremely poor. Lovely morning out though.

If you spend more than one day in Zagreb you should visit ZOO Zagreb and Maksimir Park. You can see a lot of animals even it is always sad to see animals behind bars. For couples and kids is great place to spend time together and see animals which we usually don't see in live! ZOO is part of park... More

Had a great trip to Zagreb Zoo. Great fun for small children. We specially enjoyed the 11:30 feeding of the seals.
