Tropicarium, Budapest

4.1
#2 of 7 in Zoos & Aquariums in Central Hungary
Part aquarium and part zoo, Tropicarium houses a variety of animals from all over the world, including exotic amphibians and reptiles, tropical birds, monkeys, fish, and sharks. Displays are themed around plant and animal life of the ocean, rain forests, and the native species of Hungary. All information is given in both Hungarian and English. Get up close to six large sharks in the 12 m (40 ft) glass observation tunnel. Stop by the Ray Tank, where you have the chance to touch the stingrays. Keep in mind that the complex is quite far from the city center, and will be found the most entertaining by children. A visit to Tropicarium represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Budapest trip itinerary planning site to plot your vacation.

  • Tropicarium is located in a shopping centre, in a quiet area of Budapest. Go by bus half an hour exactly, or even more. But it's worth it! Tunnels with fishes. Shark, killer whale, other huge fishes. Small fish. Bugs. Monkey whose bananas are placed so that they have to think and apply your skill to get them. Crocodiles. At the end of all these lovely stands pool, in which the rays swim, and Yes, it is true, can be ironed. I really liked it. Plus, possibly due to placement of the people was quite a bit and you can quietly admire and enjoy the wonderful rybinami.

  • The Oceanarium is located far from the Center, but public transportation in Budapest is beautiful. We liked the location itself, despite its small area, after admiring the fish and bugs, you can walk in the super market.

  • 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.
  • Perfect entertainment for kids from 3-4 years for around 3 hours. Less busy in the morning hours.
