The Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden is one of the oldest in the world. The idea of the foundation dates back to 1820-30s but it opened only on 9 August 1866. It was an initiation of a group of patriots among others Ágoston Kubinyi, geologist József Szabó, Ágoston Kubinyi, the Director of the National Museum, József Gerenday, the Director of the Botanical Garden of Budapest, and János Xántus, a zoologist, ethnographer, and the first director of the zoo.

One of the specialities of the Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden is its protected historic environment, evoking the atmosphere of the first decades of the twentieth century. Stroll anywhere in the garden and you will find this remarkable built heritage, with every animal house, building structure and even the smallest sales pavilion telling their own unique history. Luckily we do not have to listen to these silent words, an experienced guide will show us the most interesting sights and tell the most interesting story of the buildings.
