If you're planning a trip to Europe any time soon and happen to be stopping in Budapest, there's one spot you won't want to miss! At the very cool and highly unique, Zoo Cafe, you can get up close and personal with a variety of animals, from rabbits to turtles to reptiles, cats, and birds.
A recent visitor to the cafe, @miherzie, shared a video of the place on TikTok, and we're pretty fascinated by the whole experience.
Take note that you do need to book a reservation to spend time with this amazing creatures. In addition to regular visits, the Zoo Cafe also books private parties for birthdays and other events. There are even zookeepers on staff to answer any questions people might have about the animals at the cafe.
While some people who viewed the clip were concerned about these creatures and their wellbeing, they do appear to be well-cared for, and they seemed perfectly fine interacting with humans.
Another visitor to the cafe, @evelintravels, stopped by in July and shared more footage of this special place.
According to their website, one of the cafe's main missions is to encourage people to take a break from their stressful daily lives and experience the calmness that interacting with animals can offer. They also state that they hope to give people an opportunity to spend time with animals that they might not be able to have at home as pets.
This is definitely a one-of-a-kind destination. While we might not have anything like this in the United States, there are cat cafes popping up in cities across the country where one can have a somewhat similar experience. But if you're ever in Budapest, you just might want to add the Zoo Cafe to your list of must-stops.
