When I seen that Budapest Zoo was #27 of things to do in in the city, I thought we'd take a trip, but I left very disappointed. I'm not sure if it was just the heat but this place was full of the most inactive...More

This is not the zoo to visit if you want modern zoo facilities. Its fascination is that it is old fashioned, with some historic buildings - an aquarium decorated in mosiacs and gold leaf for instance. Beautiful setting in lovely botanical gardens in the centre...More

Giant range of animals, never been so close to an elephant before in my life either! Very cheap and cheerful day out.

Well maintained and rich with animal species. Kids lived it and demand to go back every time we are in Budapest.

Very nice zoo, where you can be close enough (still safe enough) from the animals. Lots of playgrounds available, too!

Budapest zoo and botanical garden is a very nice getaway in the middle of the city. Not too big or too small, plenty to see and do for a day. Wish more was translated to English though!

We got round the zoo in a morning. Student price available. Most of the main species plus lots of others, lots of indoor houses too. Some enclosures were quite small. Not overly busy so we got to enjoy the zoo peacefully.

Hello! Are the Zoo and Botanical Garden separate? I'd love to see the Botanical Garden, but I'm not interested in the zoo, and it would be great if I could pay for one and not the other.

We spent the whole day in the zoo as it is HUGE and we still didn't get to do everything! It's well worth it though!
