Ljubljana, the heart of Slovenia and the nation’s capital. With automobile traffic restricted in the centre of the city, as well as implementing other environmentally friendly measures, it is widely recognised as one of Europe’s most green and liveable capitals, and features many events and attractions to entertain tourists and residents alike.

There are a great many things to do in Ljubljana, a most beautiful European destination. One very popular attraction featured in the area is ZOO Ljubljana.

At the zoo, visitors can enjoy the entire experience of both seeing the animals in the regional park Tivoli-Roznik-Sisenski hrib in their natural habitat, as well as the opportunity to pet some of their animal “guests”.

For guests that wish to have a “hands-on” experience with the animals, and learn more about them, the zoo has ZOO Adventures every weekend of the year, and every day in the months of July and August.

Guests looking to get the most out of their interactive experience at the zoo enjoy booking a camping night right on property. Every Friday and Saturday, from 3 pm until noon the following day, organised groups can book camping accommodations at the zoo, experiencing sights and sounds rarely seen by any other park guests. Camping guests will be able to visit different parts of the zoo, getting to learn more about and feed some of the animals. They will also see animal caretakers in action, and learn what it takes to keep the animals healthy and vibrant. Dinner at night will be by campfire. Groups will form that stay in the same tents, with singing and games enjoyed by all campers.

Visits to see some animals that are active at night are very popular. And early in the morning, campers will rise, and go view animals as they awaken. Activities include exercising with the gibbons in the morning, a bear’s breakfast and viewing of the elephant’s shower, which is always great fun for everyone. Campers will need to be equipped with appropriate footwear and clothing, as well as flashlights and sleeping bags.

For visitors with a more traditional need for overnight accommodations, the Plaza Hotel offers family activities which include ZOO tickets.
