A very nice place to relax. I liked Debrecen's Zoo, the animals are clean and healthy. There are so many animals, it took us 2.30-3 hours to visit the entire Zoo. I liked it very much!

It was a wonder. This zoo is very small, but the staff is more than very enthusiastic. They love the animals and they are kind and smiling people. Lovely visit.
