Budapest Zoo and Botanical Gardens
Even when visiting Budapest Zoo, you are still discovering a piece of the city’s historic culture. First opening in 1866, it is one of the oldest zoos in the world and boasts some fantastic buildings and statues, including the magnificent main entrance and the Elephant House, with an India-inspired structure.
The zoo holds over 2,000 animals ranging from elephants to tigers, and snakes to parrots. You can have a close encounter with some of the farm animals in the petting area, and enjoy the colourful flora and fauna walking through the butterfly gardens. The zoo puts great emphasis on conservation and has many breeding programs, with new faces entering the zoo world on a regular basis. Before your visit, you can find which species have recent newborns by checking the zoo’s official website for updates.
