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.

  • This place is very hidden - in the shopping mall and very far away from the city center. But you can just go by bus 133E from the center (Astoria) and you'll be there in next 30 minutes. Tropicarium is simply nice, clean and well maintained. Much nicer experience than in Budapest ZOO.
  • Unfortunately one star is the lowest rating I can give for that „attraction“, I’d rather chose to give 0/5 stars. It is everything but species-appropriate. I haven’t seen one specie that has an appropriate amount of space. Please do not support that.
