Mini Zoo and Castle in Slovenske Konjice
It was a beautiful sunny day and with the family we went to Slovenkse Konjice to see Konjice castle.View from the castle was magnificent: you can see the entire Slovenske Konjice and surrounding hills. On the castle you need to be careful, because the steps are made of spruce wood and already slightly outdated. Castle has a lot of potential that it could be exploited, so far there is not much to do except for a nice walk.
Afterwards we decided to go further down to a town for a coffee. Our daughter, who is on 22.3. completed one year was just asleep, but we had in mind to sit in the sun and enjoy the taste of coffee. Slovenske Konjice is very nice place with lots of greenery. We stopped in the street called “ob Potoku” meaning by the creek, attracted a different establishment and interesting sign: a Mini zoo and a Tropic cafe.
We loved it. Hardly found a spot on the spring sun and enjoying drinking a cup of coffee and looking to a pirate ship which inspire imagination from early years. There were many families with children. Is it really surprising that in Slovenke Konjice you can find a pirate ship connected to a building where children all ages and sizes can play. Surprises were not over yet, the main attraction is actually a MINI ZOO. We thought how it all look differently here than in the castle: how can a good idea from the garden centre makes the attraction.
So, we visited Tropical Park Mini-Zoo: the two of us were impressed, you can imagine how children were excited there. Even our little girl was so amazed that all she could do is stare without a word and opened mouth, which is rare for her. Certainly later when she will be old enough, she will want to celebrate her birthday here. Besides animals: parrots, tropical birds, crocodile, cobras, kangaroos, rabbits, cattle, monkeys ...., has a unique surrounding, inhabited by the living creatures, a theme from South America and Africa.
Mini Zoo has continues with a special playground for children where they can meet animals mix among them. It has several topics: Terrarium, Wild west, Tropical Park, the Australian landscape, Farmyard, Castle …
In short,worth a visit.
The mini zoo is located at:
