"face to face to animals" Zoo - Budapest Zoological & Botanical Garden Tip by ivanab


This zoo was certainly a big surprise. For the price of 1000 HUF you get a whole day of activities. First, it is huge. Second, there's a wide choice of animals to be seen and their very imaginative 'houses'. There's also a botanical garden inside, restaurants, lake and great amount of activities for children.
I liked the house with butterflies thw most, 'cause you can get so near them that you can touch them and they fly free around your head.
