Another must when visiting Hungary is this Tropicarium in Budapest. In the very modern animal and nature museum you will find various thematic areas such as an outdoor pool with typical fish and aquatic animals from the region.

Where is Hungary?

In January the average temperature is between -3 and -1 degrees, in summer it is between 21 and 23 degrees. Hungary is relatively dry compared to the neighboring countries, but you should better pack your umbrella in early summer, because then there is the most productive rainfall.
