This inspiring architectural wonder offers a whole day programme with its permanent and temporary exhibitions, conference and event hall, 3D cinema, "A night in the forest" exhibition of reptiles and amphibia in terrariums, children's playroom "enchanted waterworld" or its lookout tower, as the panoramic view from its terrace in one direction to the lake and to Matra and Bukk mountains to the other is simply breathtaking. You may hire an AUDIOGUIDE device to get information in English, German, Polish or Hungarian languages.
However the strongest argument to visit the place without doubt is
the largest freshwater aquarium system
in Europe: the capacity of the giant aquarium is 535 000 litres in itself, the underwater tunnel is 7 metres long and weighs more than 4.5 tons.
