Sibiu Zoo covers an area of about 20 hectares.
In 1929, the first Zoo in Romania was opened in the Dumbrava forest by the Sibiu Power Plant, at the initiative of the engineer Szekely, who came up with the idea after finding some foxes while repairing the Sadu dam. After its establishment, several zoos and birds were donated to the Zoo, such as a wild cat, a wolf donated by Obert von Spiess from the King, a wolf donated by the Falcons Association, an eagle, a donated Carpathian deer. by Talmacel hunters, wild boars, etc. In 1930 the first bear was donated. Mention the oak at the entrance to the garden, over 600 years old.
Since 2006, both the animal shelters and the garden infrastructure have undergone extensive rehabilitation and modernization processes. At the same time, the fleet of boats (boats and pedal boats) was renewed and a playground was arranged for the little ones.
