We spent the warmest day of our stay in Budapest at the Zoo and then the Baths that are located conviently just down the road. The Zoo was very good and had lots to do, I recommend for young families.

One of the top zoos we have visited and did not come away feeling bad for the animals. Relatively small area but great use of space and layout.

The main advantage of this zoo compared to other is the inner houses of the animals. For a country ready for winter, even when it's cold & the animals get in the cages you could see them from up close... The zoo offers a unique...More
