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.

  • Today we visited the Tropicarium and it was a remarkable experience. Admission costs 2500 HUF/person in the introductory part of the exhibition are the three larger aquariums, then walk to the larger místnisti, where are the little monkeys and Lake "with the crocodiles. In this room you will experience tropical rain (pulls the roof blinds, it starts raining over the area of the Lake and storm). Awesome experience, especially for small visitors. The biggest attraction is the glass tunnel through the giant tank with sharks, rays and other fish. Almost at the exit, you can expect a large aquarium with the rays, who departs to the surface and you mate them stroke option. (They). Admission is not time-limit. I recommend a visit.

  • When you go, you must see the "shark zoo." You can see animals that you can't see in normal zoos and there are lots of aquariums with many types of fish. There's also a large aquarium that contains sharks and manta rays. My favourite aquarium contains the same kind of fish you see in Finding Nemo.
  • Very nice place for a 1h or 1h30m tour with kids, pretty cool pools with fishes and also other animals are for you to see. The big tank has some sharks, that will get your and your kids attention. Pretty interesting the tunnel to walk through the big tank
  • Great place for a family visit! You can see a big tunnel under the water, lots of species. Some of habitats seemed small but overall a beautiful experience. Would recommend for family with small children. At the exit you have a chance to buy a gift for your dear ones or yourself.
  • Great place, we used as an evening filler for the family as it’s open until 8pm. Child friendly, great animals to look at and a really reasonable cost. It’s a little unusual that it’s located in a shopping centre though!
  • The Tropicarium is gorgeous and I highly recommend visiting it with friends or family. You'll see many exotic animals and there's also fun trivia and mini-games along the way. Only minus is that there have been a lot of tourists when we visited, which made the whole experience a bit less enjoyable.
