Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden
The Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden opened in 1866, making it one of the oldest zoos in the world. It is also famous for its architecture since the Art Nouveau buildings were designed by Károly Kós in the early 1900s. You can visit several buildings, see exotic birds, and unique wildlife. In total, around 1,100 creatures can be seen here. We are sure that all the kids will be mesmerized by this zoo.
The Children’s Railway, which passes through the most beautiful spots of the Buda Hills, is one of Budapest’s most unique highlights. It is a rare and treasured relic from the Soviet times, where schoolchildren check tickets and act as guards, while adults drive. The line operates from Széchenyi Hill all the way to Hűvösvölgy.
