Butterfly House

Butterfly House

The Butterfly House will be established over the small pond in the garden of the Old Mill Lifestyle House. The home of butterflies will be a polycarbonate semispherical structure, which is expected to open to visitors in May, 2011.

The butterfly gardens are operated seasonally, and thus the weather greatly affects the visiting times. Since the butterfly species living in Hungary are protected, they can only be acquired from abroad.

We hope that our Butterfly House, which resembles a botanical garden, will contribute to saving the incredible knowledge that the Europeans persistently collected and systematized for centuries driven by their ideology; they tried to take account of and name all the butterfly species. With this place, we will have a chance to spread life through the wings of butterflies onto places which require human intervention to restore their natural form.
