Belgrade Good Hope Garden (Serbian: Београдски врт добре наде, Beogradski vrt dobre nade) is the zoo in Belgrade situated at the very center of the city, in the Kalemegdan park. It was founded in 1936.
It covers an area of 7 hectares (17 acres), and has 2,000 animals of 270 species, and beside wild animals it abounds in domestic animals too.
Its present look is contributed by many built facilities, new drinking-fountains, Wooden Sculpture Gallery, the work of the sculptor Vuk Bojović and the nursery for young animals - Baby Zoo. For its 60th anniversary it was enriched with a monument dedicated to its once most interesting and most famous resident - Sammy the chimpanzee, the first of its kind ever in this Zoo.
The Belgrade Zoological Garden was officially opened on on St Peter's Day, July 12 1936, by the mayor at the time, and an industrialist, Mr Vlada Ilic. The zoo was quickly expanded to 14 hectares.
