150 Years of Budapest Zoo

hungary-budapest-zoo-stampsThe composition shown on the stamp block was inspired by the illustrations included in the publication by Count Kálmán Lázár entitled Körút az állatkertekben (Zoo tours). The stamp block was produced by ANY Biztonsági Nyomda Nyrt., based on the plans by Tibor Zoltán Petényi. The idea of opening a zoo first emerged around 1820-30, but the events that took place in 1848-49 and the following period did not help the realisation of the zoo. Finally, at the initiative of a few scientists, the idea was followed up by action. The first lion house was opened in 1876 with lions and tigers. An elephant, a hippopotamus and a rhinoceros joined later on. From 1873, during the mandate of director Károly Serák, performing artists were also invited, who attracted even more visitors. In 1907 the operation of the zoo was taken over by the capital city of Budapest, and more than four million gold crowns were spent on its complete reconstruction.
