In keeping with tradition, the Nyíregyháza Zoo is organizing a 100 HUF on 30 November. That day the entrance fee for the zoo is 100 HUF.

The organizers are asking everyone to bring a small gift. The donation will be made in the parking lot in front of the Zoo, with a huge sign indicating the place of acceptance. First and foremost, you need container foods, detergents, and hygiene products, but the organizations are very grateful for any donation.

Nyíregyháza Zoo in a nutshell

The Zoo is situated at a distance of 5 km from the city of Nyíregyháza, in the holiday resort of Sóstó, and it is placed deep in an oak forest, in a natural, almost untouched environment. Covering an area of 35 hectares, visitors are welcomed by so-called “continents”, which enable them to “walk around the Earth” and to observe how animals live in the different parts of the world. Visitors can take a rest in Hotel Jungle, which is the Zoo’s own hotel.

The Zoo was established in 1998, in an area previously occupied by a leisure park. The Zoo is home to 500 species and more than 5000 specimens of the world’s fauna and amazing creatures such as the white tiger, the African elephant, the Komodo dragon, the Indian rhinoceros, the polar bear, the sand tiger shark, and the Western lowland gorilla. As a member of more than 50 species conservation programs, the Zoo successfully breeds giraffes, cotton-top tamarins, Bornean orangutans, Bali mynahs and Amur tigers among others.
