A good choise for a walk on sunny day. Children friendly. Children will enjoy, many sculpture for climbing and playing areas... You can sit and watch how your children are playing and enjoy on coffe break time... :)

Provided you are comfortable with the idea of visiting a zoo then this one is of a good standard. The enclosures are fair to good. The route has many excellent activity zones for children which are varied and engaging. We were visiting during the off season and during the local school term so it was very quiet and therefore much... More

My children enjoyed walking the zoo and seeing the variety of animals. Their favorite was the baby chicks and ducks. They also really enjoyed the play areas available throughout the zoo.

This is the only "real" zoo in Slovenia, and it's really good for it's size. It doesn't take all day to get around, but good two hours for sure. It's well taken care off and connections from the city center are not bad. There's also a big playground for the kids inside, right next to the giraffes, and a restaurant... More

I visited on a nice sunny day and had a long walk from the centre to the zoo. There all the animals seemed in a good state and most the enclosures seemed big enough to house them. I had the opportunity to watch some animals being fed and for and additional price members of the audience can feed some animals... More

It is tiny, you can visit all the animals in an hour. The playgrounds are the best side of the zoo. Especially in summer where there is running water on the sandbox. Since 2016 they have a new resaturant owner, which is awful and a big downside. Before that the restaurant was very good, good food, menus, big choice. Now... More

Ljubljana zoo is a small place with nothing spectacular, but it is a lovely garden, very suitable for children, and a great place to spend a few hours in good weather. The various play grounds around the zoo were even more attractive than the animals. At least that what my tow children thought (age 5 and 6). If you are... More
