“Similar (if not better) than Budapest Zoo”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Large area to explore and discover. We entered at 11 a.m. and departed only after 6 p.m.! The animals seem to be carefully looked after. Most of them have large spaces they live in and although they seemed bored (maybe because of the rather hot summer day), they are quite friendly (especially the monkeys who are constantly "begging" for food :)) ). I particularly enjoyed the Green Pyramid with the sharks and other marine animals, the elephants and the giraffes. The small domestic farm is also a must see, especially for those with small children. Unlike in Budapest Zoo, there is no possibility to feed the animals except for a few lamas (At least that is what I`ve noticed). As for lunch, I wouldn`t recommend the fast food places inside the zoo. Instead try the Irish pub at the end of he zoo`s parking lot. There is a lot a healthy food for all tastes. :) As a conclusion: you might consider spending a whole day inside the zoo just to make sure you won`t miss anything!

“The best zoo in Hungary”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

No doubt, this is the best zoo in Hungary. This acknowlodgement is getting stronger and stronger because I visit it with the kids in every 2 years.and see the improvement. Beleive or not this zoo looked like a simple barton 25 years ago. I don't know what happened after that... I presume that desparation met with experience and money. The Ocenarium is fantastic better than the similar in Budapest. If you visit Nyíregyháza you must visit the zoo!

“Marvell Zoo”

Lots of animals, well groomed and fed abundantly. Very well organized (by sections). Lots of green spaces and shadows. The best ZOO that Hungary got.

“Wild beasts are best where they naturally belong to”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

The zoo is spacious for the vistors, I wish the animals had even more space, especially big cats. It is a shame to lock up those beautiful beasts into tiny cages.
