Grădina Zoologică, Calea Dumbrăvii, Nr. 142, Sibiu, România



The Zoo of Sibiu was founded in 1929, being the first zoo of Romania. The zoo was crated at the initiative of an engineer from the Electricity Company who had the idea after finding some foxes by the dam of Sadu.

With donations, the small zoo increased its livestock. Boards, stags, eagles, a she-wolf, a wild cat and, since 1930, the first bear cub were brought to the zoo.

At the moment the zoo has an area of 15 ha and it hosts over 250 animals of 61 species: bears, tigers, lions, jaguar, boars, lamas, monkeys, Carpathian stags, deer, white buffalos, ponies, camels, zebras, mouflons, yaks, snakes, pheasants, parrots, peacocks, pigeons, etc.

At the entry of the zoo there is a secular oak that is approximately 600 years old.
