Situated around 3km from the centre we decided to walk. It's pretty easy to find, and a safe walk but does take around 40 minutes. As an alternative you can catch the no 18 bus which runs from the city centre to right outside the zoo. We purchased a Ljubljana card so entrance was already included but normal cost is... More

Seven years ago I was there after more than ten years. After that I visit LJ ZOO two to three times a year. Always when I go back I see something new. They are very friendly to the families and it is easy to spend whole day there.

I would not recommend it as a must visit in Ljubljana, but if you ran out of ideas- go ahead. The area with goats, sheeps is nice, the kids can pet them. The playground is also nice. But the staff at the buffet with ice cream and snacks were not really enthusiastic...
