Tropicarium, Budapest

4.0
#2 of 6 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.

    Had a very nice time there. Even though we were 2 adults there, but I got a chance to feel like a kid. Tunnel was absolutely amazing experience!

    The first room was just a tiny bit too humid and difficult to breathe in. The animals look great, except that crocodile looks plastic. Sharks are majestic and Thursday feeding looks impressive. Petting stingrays is awesome. Fun afternoon for all ages.

    Full of people, no air, stuffy. But quite a big variety of fish and other animals, it's worth a visit.

    Nice but rather small place. Good to visit as a part of another trip but not to plan trip as this is only visiting place.
