Your successful business, as light and easy as butterfly wings.


What is the Papilonia Butterfly House?

The Butterfly House is a specially constructed and publicly accessible ecosystem that simulates the natural conditions for the healthy and active life of exotic butterflies. Here, visitors can see the most beautiful butterfly species in the world up close, some with a wingspan of up to 20 cm.

Visiting the Butterfly House is a hands-on tour. There are no barriers between the visitors and butterflies. Exotic butterflies have no innate fear of humans, they are not stressed by their presence whatsoever and instead, they often interact with them through direct contact.
