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.

They have a large variety of animals to enjoy viewing. As a treat you can enjoy the vultures as well.

This is great place to visit for famillies with young children. You can see plenty of animals from the area and from all around the world. The zoo just got two little leons...so we could see the softer side of wilderness. :-) Around the Zoo is park Maksimir...also recommend to visit it.

Zoo is orderly and neglected animals are found in inadequate areas Ticket prices are too high. I hope they fix it

Enjoyed the zoo with my little kids. The Zoo is in a very nice location in Zagreb, next to beautiful Maksimir Park.

Coming from the States I wasn't sure what to expect when coming to a zoo in Croatia. I was thoroughly impressed. The animal enclosures are in great condition. The animals look healthy. The zoo was also much larger than I was expecting. I know some of the zoo is under construction right now but it didn't take away from it... More

It is not a Germany or Australia where you could expect a lot, therefore ZOO is also not a magical place, but as for Croatia is really very very good :) they planned a lot of rooms inside where you could walk around, there are a lot of animals outside :) they are not tortured so you won't feel that...
