Located in the strict city center Belgrade Zoo known as The Garden of Good Hope, is situated in one of the most attractive city locations – Kalemegdan Park. Founded in 1936, it has one of the oldest animal collections in Europe.

Soon after the grand opening, Belgrade Zoo became one of the most favorites places where Belgradians gladly visited. A couple of times, the Zoo hosted the members of the royal family, Karadjordjevich.

The contemporary Zoo spans a surface area of 7 hectares, with over 2,000 animals from 200 species. On the occasion of its 60th birthday, it was presented with a monument to its once most interesting and beloved residents, the first chimp to arrive at the Zoo, the ape Sammy. The Belgrade Zoo is open 365 days per year.
