  • You can come to this place more than once and each time you can find something interesting, because nature is changeable. This time we prepared and before going into the jungle as much as reduced the number of clothes and instead of sweaters, in the toilet dressed in t-shirts this allowed us to stay long inside, where it is very stuffy and hot. But the butterflies thanked us, sitting on us! On the daughter village at once 4, of which 2 large slept peacefully on the head! This unity with nature is very cool!

  • Beautiful butterflies. Small Museum of Butterflies. It is good to familiarize in passing.

  • Expected larger space with more butterflies for €7 entrance fee, but it was more like i'm visiting small botanical garden. Aside from that, it looked very nice, and butterflies were very friendly. One even landed on my shoulder and stayed there all the time until I was done with visiting. It was warm inside and air was moist, but there is a place where you can leave your jacket before you enter.
  • It was smaller then expected and very hot inside. Not really suited for smaller Children. But really beautifull and big butterflies. There is also a very nice Park outside to chill a little bit
