"Budapest Zoo" Zoo - Budapest Zoological & Botanical Garden Tip by Heniko

Completed in 1911, most of the zoo's original buildings have now been replaced, although the elephant house near the main gate remains largely intact. It is one of the oldest zoos in the world.

Improved funding has meant that facilities are now on a par with standards of those in the west, with the zoo also being very well-signed and child friendly. The attraction is open all year round, but longer hours operate during the summer months.

Address: 1146 Budapest, Allatkerti krt. 6-12
Directions: In City Park, near Heroes' Square. Take M1 to Hosok tere station or trolley-bus 72 from Arany J. u. M3 station to Allatkert stop. Also accessible by trolleys 75 79 from Stadionok and Keleti pu. (M2)
