A visit to the ZOO is always a good idea. At our ZOO, the native and more exotic animals inhabit the natural surroundings of the park Tivoli-Rožnik-Šišenski hrib environment. ZOO Ljubljana not only offers a cosy up-close view of over 500 animals, but also various animal adventures or simply a nice opportunity to observe sea lions, big cats, giraffes, meerkats and other animals at feeding times. If you grab your night time camping gear, you can even spend the night here on certain dates! The ZOO also offers a truly awesome playground for the children, as well as a place to relax for their parents and other visitors. The dogs are welcome too. We provide a free parking space, but you can also get to the ZOO by Ljubljana city bus number 18 or 18L.

This is a tourist attraction and not an animal led zoo. One can usually justify witnessing the internment of animals in the name of conservation, education, perhaps even international diplomacy, but this zoo, which perhaps thrives in the high season, is a catalogue of distressed,...More

I wen there with a friend(we are both 20). The zoo is rather large, comparing the size of the city. The animals are diverse and lively. We especially enjoyed the surikatas and the sea lion. Before visiting, check the times when special activities are happening(feeding/shows),...More

Although ZOO Ljubljana is quite nice and has a lot of activities for children, it is quite expensive for the number of animals that can be seen. One (big) part of the ZOO is closed and is being renovated. Most of the animals can be...More
