Sarajevo Zoo is Once Again Open for Visitors

Sarajevo Zoo – Pionirska dolina – is opening its doors on May 15, after a two-month break caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.


All visitors to this recreational entertainment center will pass through a disinfection tunnel, which was set up at the entrance. However, face masks and social distancing is mandatory throughout the Zoo grounds. The size of your visiting party should be limited to 5, and visitors are encouraged to avoid larger gatherings inside of the zoo area.

In the past two months, Sarajevo Zoo has become a home for llama calves, antelopes, dwarf goats and two small flocks of golden pheasants, as well as wild ducks. An additional dwelling has been built for a pair of gibbons, whose arrival is expected in the coming months.

The COVID 19 break was utilized to improve the Zoo grounds, and as a result two artificial lakes and a protective fence along the bank of Koševski potok were cultivated, and next week is reserved for planting of seasonal flowers.

Visitors to the Pioneer Valley can enjoy sightseeing and walks in nature. There is also a playground for the youngest, bumper car rides, trampoline, carousel and an electric train. The Zoo's summer garden cafe is open as well.

The working hours of the zoo are from 8 am to 8 pm every day.

Admission is free for children up to 5 years of age, children aged 5 to 15 need to pay 2.5 KM, while the ticket price for children over 15 and adults is 3 KM.
