Zagreb Zoo reopened after makeover

The Zagreb Zoo was opened for visitors on Sunday after being closed for nearly two years for renovations which included the construction of 10 new facilities and the remodelling of nine and by which the first phase of the Zoo makeover has been completed.

Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandic said at today's opening ceremony that habitats for wolves, lynxes and bears would be renovated next year and that as of 1 January 2018 visitors would be able to see giraffes which have been missing from the Zagreb Zoo for years due to a lack of space.

The project "The Modernisation of the Zagreb Zoo - Phase 1" is worth nearly HRK 38 million 95% of which was financed by grants from EU funds, while 5% of the amount came from the city budget.
