Bor Zoo - the most important information
The Bor Zoo is one of four zoos in Serbia. It was opened in 2011 and has more than seventy animal species or one hundred and thirty animals. It is surrounded by nature and it is fifteen minutes away from the city center. Thousands of people visit it every month, and there are also regular organized student visits.
Characteristics of the zoo
The zoo was built with donor funds and the construction lasted only three months. The Beo Zoo then donated the animals to the Bor Zoo, and support also came from the Palic Zoo. It was opened by Vuk Bojovic, the then director of the Beo Zoo and the writer Dudan Kovacevic. The space where the animals live is comfortable and clean. Each facility is adapted to both summer and winter conditions in order to make the animals as pleasant as possible. Among the animal species that live here are coyotes, wolves, foxes, tiger, crocodile, ostrich, kangaroo, and the biggest attraction is a white lion named Dusan and his female, which can be seen next to Bor only in the Beo Zoo. An additional ambient charm to this zoo is given by the fact that it was built on a place where there used to be a forest and a part of it has been preserved for the needs of the garden, so you have the feeling that you are really in nature. The zoo can be visited in two hours, and within it there are cafes and a playground for children, which further completes the experience.
