Nice little place to visit if it's cold or raining. There's lots of fish and sharks. You can even touch the sting rays. I feel the tanks are a bit small but other than that a nice little place! Easy to get to from the city it's just the 133E bus.

It was a good idea to visit this place when the outside temperature was very cold. Nice and cosy Tripicarium with a huge water tank! Worth visiting! :-)

I am usually conflicted about this kind of places. On one hand I really do enjoy seeing more or less exotic animals, but on the other I really do hate seeing them in captivity, especially when they are kept in poor conditions. So, I've seen better aquariums, I've seen much worse conditions and smaller cages/fish tanks, so this falls in... More

Nice place to spend an afternoon. Interesting, especially for children. Cages for animals should be more spacious

The Tropicarium in general is not very big, there are several fish and sharks and different kind of aqua animals however overall it isn't so very big. One great part of it is that you get to pet stringray which is an amazing experience, and really fun especially for children. If you have a rainy afternoon, or a cold weekend... More

I did not like it at all. It is located in a shopping mall so the space is very small. They have some interesting animals like aligators and sharks, but the animals are in very small cages so you have the feelling like they are really sufferuing. It is painfull too watch as you can see that some animals dont't... More

A bit out of the way, but a nice attraction, I must admit there are better zoos and aquariums but if you're passing by you should visit. There is also a pool where you can pet the stingrays, a tunnel where sharks are swimming around you, a rain forest simulation and you can pet a hedgehog.

A quick stop over from our 2-day family trip in Budapest. Tropicarium has a good selection of insects, animals and fishes to see..enough for my 4year old son to enjoy and not get overwhelmed. The only problem was it 's a little out of the way from downtown..the good side of this is it's a part of a large shopping... More

Was a nice place to visit. Can't compare it to any other aquarium places as I've never been. Loved the Sharks and the Stingrays. Got to pet one, the stingray that is, at the open air tank. I'm convinced the Alligators are fake though but wasn't going to clap it to find out. Loved the tropical rainstorm that happens every... More
