Connecting kids with nature at "Moara de vant"

If you want to connect your kids with nature or just want to see animals immersed in their natural habitat have a trip to the petting zoo near Cluj-Napoca. More than 200 animals live in a 10-acre wildlife preserve at "Moara de vant" where you can get close and personal with your furry of feathered friends and easily spend some hours.

Stroll along the pathways and enjoy watching animals at play: horses, deers, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, goats, ducks, sheep, miniature horses, llamas, donkeys and other domestic animals. Some of the creatures don't mind your gentle touch. In fact, some are probably just as curious about you as you are about them:-)

There is also a petting barn where you can pet and feed curious and friendly animals (sheep, lambs, rabbits).

Yippee, ki-yi-yay, you've got pony rides for children every day!

In order to ensure animal's health, the food is supplied by the zoo.

Opening hours
April - September: 10-19
October - March: 10-17

4 RON for adults
3 RON for children
1 RON for a bucket of grains and carrots (to feed the animals)
5 RON for a pony ride for kids

How to get there
We had a walking trip from Manastur neighborhood towards Lake Micesti but you can drive towards Salicea and before Salicea you turn left to Lake Micesti (you'll see the sign). From there you have 2.5 km on a dusty road.
GPS coordinates and a map here.

The zoo has a 30 seats parking lot.
