Welcome to Debrecen!


A mineral exhibition opens at the Debrecen Zoo

In August, visitors to the Debrecen Zoo and Botanical Garden will be able to admire not only the beauty of flowers but also of the mines in the exhibition entitled “The World of Minerals, the Poetry of the Earth”.

The exhibition is organized together with the Pál Szőnyi Mineral-Friendly Circle, which not only introduces the eye-catching natural treasures of Hungary, but also the rarities from many parts of the world. At this year’s exhibition, about 15 boxes will be filled by the jewels of our Earth, and a special section will commemorate the recently deceased leader of the Mineral-Friendly Circle, Erzsébet Faragóné Zilahi-Sebess, by presenting Hungarian specialties from her collection.

Held in the Exotic Africa Flying Building, the exhibition is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., 1st-31st August.  The exhibition, which can be viewed free of charge with the entrance to the zoo, visitors are accompanied by a guided tour.
