Tropicarium - Review

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, Budapest Reviews

  • It's worth visiting. The ticket price is not expensive. I think it was about 1,800 forints. At the beginning there is a jungle with crocodiles, some strange turtles, birds ... When there are sounds of thunder and rain. Just like in the Amazon Jungle. After them are the fish. Wear light clothing as it is warm inside.

  • It was fun to see the real alligators and enjoyed to touch with the batoids in this aquarium! It costs €18 for an adult and it might be a bit pricy for this small aquarium. But if you think about they need to feed to all the fishes and take care of their environment to live inside forever, it’s not expensive. I missed seeing but sometime you can swim with some sharks in this place so you should check it out.

  • Lots of interesting fish and animals to see. The kids enjoyed it very much. We spent an hour+ there.

  • Something so beautiful, so calming. This is the must visit place. This like a shrine for good and positive energy.

  • The place is inside Campona Shopping center. The price for a family ticket is 8800 ft. and you could stay as much as you want. They have a lot of fishes in all sizes. Also they have a tropical garden with aligators and fishes. The most interesting thing is the tunnel and for kids it will be amazing to see the sharks swiming close to them above their heads. At the exit you will find a shop with all kind of toys.
