I’ve seen nothing like the zoological garden of Tirana, Albania before – and that has good and bad aspects. It is very uncommon as it is rather a park with animals located between high apartment houses. You can find it between the great park / the artificial lake and the botanical garden of the city. On a lake you can find many birds, within fenced areas you can see llamas, ostrichs and bisons.
But there are also bears and lions in much to small very old cages. The zoological garden seems to not have sufficient funds and the conditions for some species are pretty bad. Hopefully this will change when Albania becomes part of the European Union – the animals would deserve it.
