Overview
More
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.

A lot of animals in nature, in the forest near the city center, friendly for children ( children's playgrounds). Small, but still big. You need a few hours.

ZOO Ljubljana is very attractive for children and adults. Besides quite a few different animal species, have many diverse playgrounds for children. It is not very big, but it worth a visit.
