If you are looking for an extraordinary experience during your visit of the Czech Republic,
our tropical greenhouse with an unusual name "BUTTERFLY HOUSE"
located in Žírovice close to Františkovy Lázně is waiting for you.



Really close to Fratiskovy Lazne, on the way to the nature reserve SOOS, you can enjoy and almost “touch” the beauty of exotic butterflies in their natural habitat. From an egg to caterpillar, pupa and the fragile butterfly, the whole life cycle takes place right in front of you. Heat, humidity and flittering of many wings – those are usually the first impressions of our visitors. At the same time you can enjoy a quite wide collection of European and exotic butterflies, located at the museum downstairs. If you are not in a hurry and want to learn more about the interesting life of butterflies, you can read all the accompanying texts, conveniently placed next to our collections. In case you get inspired with this quite unusual hobby, you can put together your own butterfly collection or buy just "the one" to make yourself (or anyone else) happy. Stanislav Macek has dedicated his whole life to breeding butterflies and as time went on, he opened the greenhouse for the public. His wife now carries on with his work. Visitors can observe butterflies which they would probably never see in the free nature together, including species from Africa, South America, South and Eastern Asia and Australia, all of them in one single space.



Bigger groups of visitors (buses, school trips) are better to be announced in advance. Please give us a call on: 00420 777 142 134 or just drop us an e-mail on:motylidum@gmail.com.
In case you want to walk from Frantiskovy Lazne, the red touristic sign will lead you directly to the Butterfly House. The trip from the train station will take you approximately half an hour. We are looking forward to your visit. Don’t forget to bring your camera!
