I thought zoo in Beograde was poor, but this one is below all my lowest expectations. It was really hard to watch animals that are not taken care of at all, in dirty, small cages. I really hope this zoo will be closed soon.

I have visited the zoo twice, and it hasn't improved between visits! Animals are not well looked after and are rather sad, not much room for them. It would be better to close this down.

I love animals and my girl friend's son loved going to see them. However, this zoo and many of the animals are in very, very bad repair. Several of the animals are underfed and in bad living quarters. If this zoo was in the U.S.,...More

That's awful place. Dirty and stinky. Thin animals are kept in tiny cells. I don't think they have enough food. It looks like concentration camp...

Awlful place to visit. All the animals are placed in tiny cages with no room to move around. The only elephant was swinging side to side in a corner and would do nothing else. The wild cats would run around in and out of there...More

Nice but sad conditions that the animals have to live in. I only wish I could relocate and upgrade it much.

This place should be closed down and the animals transferred to a city that can afford them. Very poor state of affairs, very sad. Lots of cats.
