Trip Planner: Budapest / Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden
See a Komodo dragon, lion cub nursery, and diverse plant life at Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden, the oldest zoo park in Hungary. Founded in 1866, this zoo is actually one of the oldest in the world. Walk through the park to admire more than 1,000 species of animals. Notice the historical Art Nouveau buildings in this nature preserve, as well as several exhibits of native and exotic plants in the gardens, including the Magical Hill and America Tropicana collections. Spend some time watching the zoo's rhinos, hippopotamuses, bears, primates, and many other creatures that have inhabited the park since its reconstruction after World War II.

Be prepared to put aside at least 3-4 hours at this zoo and garden as there is a lot to see and do for the whole family. The animals are very well kept up for, and were quite sociable with other visitors. The tiger even put on a good show by roaring to the crowd for a few minutes drawing in many people. Do be aware as some of the buildings have different closing times then others. Overall this zoo and garden was fascinating for a lot of reasons, mostly due to them showcasing animals that aren’t present in many other zoos, and also their abundance of interactive exhibits for adults and children.
It was a very nice experience strolling around the Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden! The Spring/Summer time gave chill-cool-hot weather, which drove us to get some Ice balls to eat while walking inside the zoo. All of the animals are friendly and lovable! Though, there are some needed protection. 😊 The entire place is clean, but some parts have normal (animal) smell. So, if you are looking for a place to get your kids and entire family to have a bonding with, try to visit this zoo! 😊
