The Zoo Veszprém’s Dinosaur Park opened

Hungary’s biggest dinosaur exhibition was opened ceremoniously in Zoo Veszprém. More Shorter

Mária Brányi vice mayor said in her welcome speech, that these dinosaurs lived in the same time just like the Placochelys placodonta, which was found in Veszprém in 1899 and this is the most famous fossil of Hungary. The exhibited sculptures in the Dinosaur Park demonstrate the nature of the Mesozoic, we can learn useful informations from the external tables from the dinosaurs. The aim of the project beyond the publicity is the performance of the experience, where the children can see the job of the paleontologists.

On the opening ceremony we host four Veszprém’s schools’ students, who came from the Szilágyi Erzsébet Keresztény Általános és Alapfokú Művészeti Iskola, Cholnoky Jenő Általános Iskola, Simonyi Zsigmond Ének-Zenei és Testnevelési Általános Iskola and Kozmutza Flóra Speciális Iskola to Zoo Veszprém. After the ribbon-cutting the guests were toured the 2 hectares area with the leading of Károly Csizmadia zooteacher, they could see firstly the life-sized sculptures. On the end of the walk the children could “unveils” from one of the most popular dinosaur, the T. Rex, after that they could go to the children’s tents.

In one of the tents the children can colour and paint dinosaurs, in the other tent they can carve dinosaur’s skeleton from plaster cast, and in the other tent we made a miniature digging, where the lucky ones can find treasures. The adventuresome children can ride on the dinosaurs’ backs, and the visitors can go into the mouth of the T. Rex in order to take a picture.

The entrance of the Dinosaur Park can find the Zoo’s Gulya Hill part, it can be approach after the Petting Zoo near the Chimpanzee World.
