  • The House of moths, butterflies is very charming, as any butterfly garden is not very spacious but contains a lot of butterflies, as well as the entire development process, from eggs to adulthood. The caretaker was extremely polite, friendly and very helpful Attention: butterflies are at greater activity when the Sun is stronger, so in the times or days without sunshine you can't see them.

  • When I got the butterflies should be asleep, because I didn't see any. Flowers are beautiful, but I was there to see insect, not flower.
