A very nice place to relax. I liked Debrecen's Zoo, the animals are clean and healthy. There are so many animals, it took us 2.30-3 hours to visit the entire Zoo. I liked it very much!

The zoo is nicely laid out and clean. Lots of animals which don't look as sad as in other zoos. Not crowded at all on a warm December Saturday.
