Kopshti Zoologjik i Tiranës (Tirana Zoo)

The only one of its kind in Albania, the Kopshti Zoologjik i Tiranës (Tirana Zoo) is concentrated in an area of ​​7 hectares in the southern part of town, between the Grand Park (Parku i Madh) and the Botanic Garden of Tirana (Kopshti Botanik). The zoo was established in 1966. Unfortunately, the zoo finds itself in a very bad shape at present, needing funds for reparations and animal care. There are not many animals on display: just some bears, lions, lamas, monkeys, wolves, foxes, and some birds. The cages are too small, and not very clean, and visitors are not advised not to stress the animals. Despite its poor appearance, the zoo is still popular with local visitors, and children come here to play every week.

The Tirana Municipality announced the intention to extend the zoo into the park, creating better conditions for the animals. Since the announcement in 2006 nothing has changed. The location is ideal: a scenic park, full of trees and green spaces, but the beauty of the park is failing considerably with the rise of new apartment flats in the area.

If you visit Tirana, consider visiting the Zoo as well. Your entrance fee might help.
