1. Veszprém Zoo

Kittenberger Kálmán Plants and Wildlife Park is the country zoo in Hungary with the longest standing traditions. It can be reached from the downtown of Veszprém by a short walk. It gives home for 450 animals of 120 species. Most recent developments are found on the upper part, on the so called Gulya Hill, such as one of the most beautiful and largest African Savannah runs in this country where zebras, giraffes and the three member white rhinoceros family can be admired. Chimpanzee World, a unique complex in Europe, both in terms of design and topics, was built in the neighborhood of the Savannah run.
The Elephant House of the Zoo- opened in autumn- satisfies all the beaked ones needs. There is a rainfall set-up over the inner paddock of the House that sprinkles the animals with warm water. As the ‘blessing’ comes, they start running around while trumpeting to show how happy they are.

One of the children’s favourite places, the custom designed and built Kid Jungle and Terrarium, is also found in the Fejes Valley, where adventuresome little kids can climb and crawl as they wish, may try the Sloth Path, climb into the animal transport container, but they also may take a rest in the Parrot Club, or slide down on the covered slide from there. The playground is bordered by terrariums where visitors may have a look at the exotic reptiles across the glass walls.

By the project to introduce the marine life, the outer and inner pool happened to be filled so that the visitors can get to know the everyday lives of the penguins and seals.

The savannah playground, which is almost one hectare, has 25 different toys for children. You can get a glimpse of the special fauna of Africa and a complete African village awaits the visitors.

In the zoo you can find a park where young and old people can also find the right recreation for them! It is possible to try to excavate various excavations, to carve out dinosaur skeletons. There is an opportunity to take pictures with exhibited dinos.

Dungeon: According to the first records, the Veszprem dungeon existed as early as around 1600, but at that time it consisted of only one cell. One hundred years later, according to records from 1753, the dungeon had already expanded into at least three places for detention. By the time the castle of Veszprem ceased to be a border fortress in 1702, as a consequence of this a document from 1753 already names it as a county jail.
Prisoners were housed in narrow, musty locks of 2, 4, 8, 12 persons, where they spent 23 hours a day, isolating men, women and juveniles from each other. During the operation of the prison, there were several attempts to escape, some that were successful, some of which were realized in a film-like way, descending on the sheets tied together on the castle wall. But all fugitives, without exception, fell into hands in a short time.
