The mission of Nyíregyházi Állatpark Nonprofit Kft. (Sosto Zoo) is to provide access for the upcoming generation to a world-class exhibition of our ecological environment in the less developed Eastern region of Hungary, to teach and raise awareness of the unity of our natural environment, and the upmost responsibility of humankind to save it for the future.
Sóstó Zoo is situated in a distance of 5 kms from the city of Nyíregyháza, in the holiday resort of Sóstó, where the beach, the open air museum and the forest offer various recreational activites for the visitors. The Zoo is placed deep in an oak forest, in a natural, almost untouched environment. In the area of 35 hectares visitors are welcomed by so-called „continents”, which enable them to „walk round the Earth” and to observe how animals live in the different parts of the world. Visitors can take a rest in Hotel Jungle, which is the Zoo’s own hotel.
