Pioneer Valley Zoo temporarily closed to visitors

Sarajevo's zoo and recreation/entertainment center – Pioneer Valley – will be closed to visitors for the next few days while the artificial lakes are being cleaned.


The lakes are located in the central part of this complex and are home to the ducks and swans. Once the sediment has been cleared and the lakes have been refilled, greenery will be planted around the perimeters in order to beautify this city oasis.

Located just two kilometers from the city center and covering an area of 8.5 hectares, the Sarajevo Zoo, or Pionirska Dolina (Pioneer Valley), is a favorite destination among youngsters.

Aside from nature walks and being able to see several dozen species of animals, Pionirska Dolina offers numerous activities and entertainment for children (electric cars, trains, merry-go-rounds...), as well as playgrounds with slides, seesaws, spinning wheels...
