I really enjoyed this museum. I specially liked the collection of rocks/stones/shells etc. It also had some live animals too such as lizards and fish. It was reasonably priced to get in. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

You have a really great view from the top of the TV-tower of 360 degrees and there is an elevator to get there. You also have a little bar upstairs with a good coffee and you can watch the Panorama while drinking it.

Gyongyosi Allatkert, Zoo

You can meet exotic species, reptiles, big cats and the animals of the Hungarian fields and Forests alike in the tiny but continuously expanding Zoo.

Reviewed By András R

Aim of our trip were the recently borne little lion kittens in this small zoo. The lion kittens' caressing is an amazing program for kids and also elderlies (every day btw 10-12 and 15-17 still in June 2015). You can't find a similar experience now in Hungary. Tickets are only for one round (the long of your visitation among the lions depends on the waiting people behind you). Otherwise just a small selection of wild and traditional Hungarian animals. Tickets for adults are €4.

Kekesteto Sicentrum

Reviewed By TamasBankiBudapest - Budapest, Hungary

Kekesteto is the highest peak of Hungary, with 1014m
At the same time one of the best ski slopes in Hungary. Close to Budapest, Eger, Gyöngyös and Hatvan.
I was having a day and a half ski trip. Nice 1 km long slope, with a poma and a t-bar ski lift, and very short queues, even on a weekend.
Prices are very fair, a day ticket (9AM - 4:30PM) is HUF4900 (~€15) night ticket HUF3800 (~€12).

Matra Railway

Reviewed By Nagy_Andor

Well, this is only open in summer timetable, from 1st of april, til end of october. Bud i visit very often, it takes you to the gates of the Matra Mountains, with a lots of things to see (and drink :))))
Tickets are cheap. Really. Staff is nice. It takes you over remote small villages, and former film sets, mines, and the line is going out of the city, then suburban vineries, small villages, then forest itself. you will be not disappointed.
On the web, look for "mátravasút" images!
