The Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden is one of the oldest zoological gardens in the world: it was opened to the general public on 9 August 1866.
– Besides animals, plants and different buildings, there are many works of art in the garden as well. First and foremost it is the statues that deserve our attention.
– Almost all of the buildings of the Zoo, the animal houses and even the fences have their own history. Most of them were designed by renowned architects.
– Centuries-old trees and animals. The oldest residents of the Zoo, witnessing the history of the institution for decades.
In 2019 more than ever, a total of 2,201 animals in need of human assistance, were given a second chance as part of our zoo’s rescue efforts. In the Hedgehog Hospital, the public can see how we deal with rescued animals.
