Situated in large green park this Zoo is both, zoological and botanical experience. You will walk between old trees, small lakes, green grass, and beautiful flowers in different shape and decor. Cages are here something what is sad past of human race. Rare institution in this country with my maximum mark. Warmly suggested for everyone.

The Zoo spreads on 10 hectares. Its concept, beauty, arrangement and the treatment of animals rank this Zoo among the leading ones in this part of Europe. Here, visitors can enjoy observing 60 animal species, few hundred specimens of animals that are housed in cages or other facilities. It has a playground and a Petting Zoo.

Most beautiful place in Serbia. We go to the ZOO at least 2 times a year, and what I can see is that zoo is constantly improving. Some new animals and plants were added. Animals have bigger, better living environment.

This zoo is modest, yet it offers a pleasant experience. Animal pens seem to offer much better and more spacious environment for the animals than Belgrade zoo.

Nice place to visit and the thing that is special about this Zoo is the beautiful style of the building objects in it - ceramic tiles of the roofs in color contrasts, as a part of the recognizable and traditional style motifs of Palić and Subotica architecture. Also the paths through the Zoo is well signed, and what I mostly... More
