We spend half a day in the Zoo, somethings were not open and we didn't see all the animals. We liked that you can get close to lot of animals. Some of them would need a bigger space. You get with the ticket entrance to the Holnemvolt park which is more for the children I would say. We took a... More

A very good day trip in the city of Budapest. Entrance price is very reasonable and it is easy to get to. Many different species of animals. All look well cared for and visitors had opportunity to get closer to many than other zoos we have visited. Very pleased with our visit here.

We went to the zoo on a Sunday morning during school holidays but started relatively early in the morning. The queues were small and easily managed. Inside the zoo is a pleasant environment with plenty of space and shade under the trees. A wide selection of animals that are usually easy to see although sometimes this is through perspex that...

The zoo was mostly very beautiful and had lots of animals but still left me with a bit of mixed feelings. Some animals like the giraffes, sloths and smaller apes had big, beautiful enclosures and seemed quite content with their lives but watching the elephants and hippopotamus made me sad cause they had too small and boring habitats. If some... More

Well where do I start with this zoo. I brought my son here to celebrate his birthday. To help mark the occasion, we had a colourful balloon with us. However, as we were walking around the park, a highly trained team of martial arts specialists appeared from nowhere armed with pins and popped his balloon, leaving my son traumatised. I... More

When we decided to visit zoo we couldn't imagine that we would end spending 4 hours.Children loved it and though some of the zoo parts were seemed neglected the overall expresion was very good. So if you travel with your kids don't miss it.You will be amazed of their response!!

The zoo improved a lot in the last 10-12 years and this process seems continous. Altough the process is slow, the affort is evident. Sometimes it is a bit crouded and the facilities are not excellent, the whole place is pritty and a must see in Budapest.

The zoo is a bit tired in places but it still a good day out for our girls aged 3&4. We're spoilt living near Chester Zoo England so tried no to be to critical but we were saddened by the size of some enclosures, especially the cats. Saying that other animals seemed very happy & there was a good mix... More

A nice way to spend a day in Budapest I'd you really love animals. Nice petting zoo you can enjoy the company of small Farm animals. Also wonderful display for urangutans and gorillas. All in all a good day experience.
