You can find the following events, attractions near the ice-rink, which programs are recomennded by the organizer for all ice-hockey teams.

Aquaworld – www.aqua-world.hu

One of the biggest indoor water theme parks in Europe offers unforgettable entertainment to visitors of every age throughout the year. The adventure centre is covered by a giant dome, 5-storey high and of a diameter of 72 m. It is so big it could host comfortably a family of blue whales, the biggest animals on Earth. The monumental replica Angkor temple surrounded by suspension bridges, towers and pools is a breath-taking sight. The world of the “serene statues” is a perfect counterpoint to the use of the most modern architectural and technical solutions, in line with the Aquaworld conception, to create a modern shrine of aquatic culture offering complex adventures to visitors. Aquaworld is located on the northern outskirts of Budapest, at the Pest abutment of Megyeri Bridge, along the M0 ring, in a green area, yet close to the town centre. It has an outdoor car park with a capacity of more than 1000, easily accessible via the Aquaworld exit of the new Budapest M0 ring.

Hospital in the Rock / www.sziklakorhaz.hu

Beneath the Buda Castle District lie approximately 10 kilometres of interconnected caves, cellars and meandering tunnels, which the inhabitants have continuously used, expanded and rebuilt. At the outbreak of the Second World War, when the 1st District and specifically the Castle was the Government Quarter, the routes were fortified, the number of entrances restricted, and the often separate passages interconnected. All this was carried out so that the 10-15m deep cave system could serve as an air-raid shelter in the event of bombing. Then, the Mayor of Budapest, Dr. Károly Szendy, ordered the construction of an emergency surgical hospital beneath the Castle for the purposes of air-raid defence and medical treatment.

Tropicarium Óceanárium / www.tropicarium.hu

We do not only present a part of the deep sea world but also a tiny bit of a tropical rainforest, where the sky thunders every quarter of an hour, rain starts to fall and lightning zigzags over the lazily lying Mississippi alligators. Besides, the Tropicarium can boast with the largest sea aquarium in all Central Europe, the shark aquarium containing 1.4 million litres of salt water, housing 8 two-meter-long sharks and hundreds of colourful fish of other species, swimming around in peaceful harmony. In addition to the enormous fish-tank, there are 50 other ‘smaller’ aquariums and terrariums (meaning 5-40.000 litres each!) on site.
Let us take a short walk and see what types of animals call the Tropicarium their home.
Room 1 presents fish species of the Hungarian fauna¸ including protected Hungarian fish. The underwater world can be observed in its natural environment in the outer pools.

Moving on, we can imagine walking in the depth of rainforests with colourful exotic birds flying freely above our heads and squirrel monkeys jumping branch to branch with ease, not to mention the elegantly stretching snakes in green, yellow, red and other colours.
The next room introduces us to the world of alligators and the tropical rainforests.
Visitors are greeted by chameleons, giant turtles, spiders and scorpions; naturally, they do not move about freely…
The freshwater department presents the fish species that live in the beautiful and pristine lakes of Asia and Africa among green water plants and cliffs, in an environment that resembles the original.
Piranhas are the real ‘stars’ here and their reputation is far from being perfect …
The 11-meter-long observation tunnel and the huge, 4-meter-deep shark aquarium offer a breathtaking sight, where the frightening looking sand tiger sharks, leopard and brown sharks swim only arm’s length from the visitors. The qualified caretakers of the Tropicarium, all holding diver’s certificates, dive weekly to fed the sharks from their hands and clean the pool. They give 12-15 kg of sea fish to the predators each time. Shark feeding takes place from 3 to 4 p.m. each Thursday, apart from some special occasions.

Understandingly, one of the favoured places for visitors is the ray stroking pool, where they can feed these creatures of silky skin and lovely face.

House of Terror Museum / www.terrorhaza.hu

Having survived two terror regimes, it was felt that the time had come for Hungary to erect a fitting memorial to the victims, and at the same time to present a picture of what life was like for Hungarians in those times. In December 2000 ˝The Public Foundation for the Research of Central and East European History and Society ˝ purchased the building with the aim of establishing a museum in order to present these two bloody periods of Hungarian history. Dr. Mária Schmidt is the Director-General of the House of Terror Museum, which was completed in February 2002.
