FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

The Ljubljana ZOO is open every day, including Sundays and all holidays.

You do not need an EU DCC certificate to visit and walk around the zoo during the epidemic. You need one of the EU DCC conditions to visit the Zoo Experience, the Bear’s Edge Zoo Shop and the Safari Restaurant. Measures such as wearing masks indoors, hand disinfection and keeping your distance from each other still apply.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome at our ZOO, but a ticket must be purchased for them. They have to be kept on a leash at all times during the visit and abide by the etiquette and safety rules. They are not allowed to enter the Mini ZOO, the Australian fence and children’s playgrounds.

No, the daily ticket is valid for one entry. You can leave the ZOO for a short period and return if you, for example, forget something in the car (point this out earlier at the cashier’s desk).

No, you cannot “transfer” the ticket to another day in case of weather worsening. We also do not refund the purchase price for it.

ZOOs do not buy animals but exchange them with each other. The costs of acquiring new animals are transport and arranging a new space for the animal.

No. We are helped by students of appropriate fields who do internships with us, as animal safety is subject to very high safety standards, which require longer orientation.

We have not had a Wildlife Shelter at the ZOO since 2003. If you come across an injured or sick animal, call the Wildlife Shelter in Muta in Koroška at 02 876 12 85, 041 518 939.

The Ljubljana ZOO keeps a few smaller animals that we handle, but we do not do presentations with them at your location. We invite schools to our ZOO, where pupils can see several representatives of the animal kingdom and get a complete picture of it.

The lower part of the ZOO is more or less flat and accessible to visitors in wheelchairs. Only the upper part of the ZOO with indigenous animals is unsuitable for wheelchairs. At the entrance and next to the restaurant, we also have a toilet for visitors with special needs.

Yes, there are three free car parks available to ZOO visitors.

Visitors can only pet animals in the children’s ZOO, except in their rest areas. Other animals are not allowed to be petted, but you can find out about the ZOO programs that also allow you to have controlled contact with some of them.

No, feeding is strictly forbidden. The animals have special menus with precisely defined quantities, quality and type of food. Too much of one type of food or unsuitable food can be fatal to an animal. To provide an overview of the animal’s diet, we offer visitors the purchase of feeding coupons.

We urge you to follow the rules without exception these days and not touch or feed the animals. In addition to preventing the possible transmission of the virus, it will also be easier to ensure that animals eat everything they need and not too much. 

Not at the moment. There is also no Urbanomat in the immediate vicinity of the ZOO, so check the balance before visiting or take advantage of the option to pay for the bus ride with a mobile phone.

No, family tickets are not in our offer.

Yes, the LPP 18 or 18L line drive past the ZOO.

No. We do business with cash and cards at the entrance to the ZOO, in the Medvedji rob store and in the Safari restaurant.

Sure you can, just mind the cleanliness, collect the trash, and do not feed the animals with it.

There is also the restaurant Safari in the ZOO.
