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 - Write a Review

  • It's conveniently located inside of the shopping center. This place will be interesting for kids and adults as well. It isn't very big though, but still if you're animal person and you've been to Budapest Zoo, you definitely have to go there. You can explore everything in under less than 25-30 mins.

  • Nice place for adult and children as well. Located a little bit away from city center but no problem to get there by car. It was a little bit crowded and we had to wait aprox. 20 minutes to get in. All descriptions are in English only.

  • The place was nice. It had a big tank with sarks and a small zoo with monkeys and reptiles. I wanted it to be bigger. It was very crowdy too but I guess that's because it was Saturday. If you have never been to other big aquariums in Europe, it does worth a shot.

  • Wonderful aquarium to spend an hour or more of your time. Very nicely set up. Clean and well kept.

  • Never fails to amaze. Nice atmosphere and kids friendly surroundings. The rainforest area and shark tunnel are amazing. Don't forget to stop at the stingrays 😀
