Tropicarium- Oceanarium is a complete delight for anybody who likes to see animals living in a comfortable habitat. The best part about this tropicarium is that is the largest saltwater aquarium in Central Europe and is situated a little away from the hustle bustle of the city on the outskirts. The biggest highlight of this place is the deep shark tank, where you can see sharks go about just like they would in the ocean. There are about 8 sharks in this and you can see them through the glass walls. The natural habitat is recreated for the animals over a widespread area of 32,000 square feet. The habitat is recreated in the form of a tropical rainforest where you can see creatures go on about their day and you get a chance to interact with them in your own way. For experienced divers, swimming with the sharks would be a memorable experience. For others, seeing various species of monkeys, fish, exotic birds is an awesome reason to visit this attraction.

Tropicarium Reviews & Ratings

  • Nice place to visit, with big variety of fish species, nice aquariums, forest-like environment with birds and a lot other interesting species. I recommend this place for families with young kids, for people who admire marine life and love fish. I really liked it here even though I expected it would be a tad bigger.

  • Nice aquarium situated in the middle of shopping mall - still its pretty big and it take 1,5 - 2 hours to visit. Many of interesting aquariums, also reptiles section, but mainly Shark tunnel. We enjoyed very much. If you are in Budapest with kids you should go there. Only problem that its located far from city center. If you not by the car you must take a city bus and go for like 40 minutes

  • Tropicarium is far from city center so if u don't have have a car prepare yourself for an hour long journey by public transport. Aquarium would be better if every info on animals was also in English. Other than that shark aquarium is really great.

  • My entire family loved it!!! We got some discounted price using our Hungary card that was very pleasant. The place is kept clean and spacious for visitors. Easy way through with the stroller. Very nice animals! Thumbs up! Highly recommended.

  • Amazing animals, amazing sight. You feel like you are in the jungle rather than in the tropicarium. The aquariums are mind-blowing, especially the one that has a tunnel in it. It's a good place to bring your young kids. They will really enjoy the last pool, where you can touch the fish. Amazing exparience.
