Budapest is the best city to learn the art of resource management. This zoo that opened up in the year 1866 is still as well maintained and much to our delight has expanded beautifully over the years. It is the oldest zoo in the whole of Hungary and is also one of the oldest in the whole world. With about 1072 species, these Botanical Gardens are sure to make you squeal like a child. Out of the 1072 species, you also find the rare ones such as the Komodo Dragon and the Wombat here. In the initial years, most Hungarian species were housed here but over the years there have been additions of various rare kinds of camels, monkeys, kangaroos and parrots. Ages ago, a giraffe was donated to this zoo by Queen Elizabeth. If you have a kid with you, you should definitely visit this attraction.

  • You get to see all the animals. I ran in and only had an hour and a half to see everything and every animal because I was about to miss my flight. The layout of the zoo is amazing and makes it possible for you to see a lot of the animals. I went to the London zoo recently and spent half a day there and didn’t see anything since the layout of many enclosures helps animals just hide and all you see is empty enclosures. But Budapest was amazing. You get to see a lot of the major animals close up. It was an amazing visit

  • So we went to spend the afternoon last Monday... And we had to realize that a whole day is too short to see all the sights and try all the exhibitions! There's animals, with feeding and playing programs for most of them, but there's also interactive exhibitions and all kinds of stuff! Such a lovely experience, I especially enjoyed strolling between the flying foxes (big bats, you're let in with them, but they are chill) and the interactive exhibitions. I wish the butterfly house was open - only in the summer though.

  • Amazing zoo with so many animals, I used to come when I was a kid, but I still enjoy it. My only problem was this time: still so much plastic everywhere...I think they should work on reducing all sorts of plastic in the zoo. Its a great place to educate kids so it would be beneficial

  • One of the best zoo that I ever seen. Located near a beautiful Park (where is a castle) and heroes square. Very big place, well-marked route. I love the thematic "animal-house" where you can be face to face with the animals. Zoo close very early, 17.30 during the week. To visit whole zoo it takes more than 5/6 hours. This zoo is a must if you are in Budapest.

  • Wonderful place!!!I have a good time with my boyfriend here😇 It is suitable for people of all ages and of course children like it... There are many animals waiting for you. You can walk to visit nearby places. There are castles, monuments, heroes and more. You can find a good day there😊
