I love everything, which are connected to the see, so i liked this place pretty much. :) Its more than a zoo, there are huge aquariums with fishes and sharks, and you can walk in a tunnel, inside of the aquarium. At the end of the 'museum', you can caress raja too. :)

“not bed, not the best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

I have been here many times. In Hungary this is a nice attraction with children although a bit expensive for people who lives here. Quite a short visit, about one hour cen be spent here. 1advantage is: it is in a shopping mall.

“Not as good as we expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

This was our second visit - the first shortly after it opened, much better back then - , we took our 2,5 year-old daughter. It was way too crowded, a bit boring/poor, and much smellier than it should be to be enjoyable... won't be going again for quite some time. (And ticket prices are exaggerated, not enough value for money, as far as I'm concerned)

Hungary is a landlocked country. If you want to see a real interestin Tropicarium, go to Australia or anywhere else outside of Europe.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

I really liked it, in addition to loads of fish and sharks it also had monkeys, gerbils, guinea pigs, spiders, reptiles and so on, so there was a lot to see. Location isn't that good, but you can easily get there from Kosztolányi D. tér by taking a bus 114 when you need to get off at stop called "Lépcsős utca". Tropicarium is situated in Campona shopping centre, which is quite big so you really can't miss it, you can see it from the bus on your left side.
