The Kittenberger Zoological Garden of Veszprém is one of the oldest Hungarian zoos. It is situated in the picturesque Fejes Valley located within 15 minutes of walking distance from the historical downtown district of Veszprém, just 15 km off Lake Balaton. The Zoo had a very rich animal collection during the seventies, featuring notable animals such as Böbe, the entire country’s favourite chimpanzee. Her grave and statue may be viewed by the entrance. In addition to carrying out a multilingual public relations effort, the Zoo also places a high emphasis on education and training – children are invited to participate in zoological workshops, outdoors environmental and biology classes as well as summer camps. The site is also available in Esperanto language.
