Poor if you compare with other locations in western Europe. The place has no designated parking available. We went on a Saturday and we were directed by some men to park in the woods, we paid and there was no receipt. There is no place...More

It's a good place to take the kids out for 2-3 hours max. It's smaller than other zoos in Europe, but the admitance ticket is very cheap. We go there once every 2-3 months because the kids love the animals. It has an exotic birds...More

The negative reviews of this zoo do not do it justice! If you are looking for somewhere like London Zoo, or the London aquarium then (obviously) you will be disappointed...however if you are after a nice sized zoo with a good variety of wild cats,...More

The Zoo is a bit run down, the cages are dirty, there is nowhere to sit for a coffee or at least to have a drink. Summer in Romania is very hot, I find it very strange you cannot have a drink there, particularly difficult...More

If you're a zoo lover, it's worth to visit this zoo. If you've visited many western European zoos and looking for the same quality of animal enclosures and adventurous exhibits, you'd experience out this zoo has not the same standard.
