Budapest Zoo is closed from the 11th of November until further notice.
We have opened our large showroom of butterflies in 2000. It was relocated to its current place in 2002 but during the years we have made several changes to it, we expanded and modernised it. The butterfly park itself is a seasonal attraction as we are speaking of a gigantic marquee made from net which can't be heated. Accordingly the butterfly park is only open for visitors in the in the summertime. The marquee covers an area of 260 square metres and airspace of 1200 cubic metres. More the 100 different species of tropical butterflies and moths are presented in here where visitors can move around in the same place jointly with the butterflies. Most of the presented specimen comes from Central America, Africa and Southeast Asia. We receive the butterflies in pupa form in the late spring from tropical butterfly farms, but there are several cases and species where we are also capable of doing propagation locally. The eclosure of the pupas is presented in a cupboard.
