  • Went in the day when it was raining. came to the opening, and passed without a queue. But when left turn observed hours on 2. The Aquarium itself is something outstanding. But generally interesting. There are audio guides. Something unusual in principle was not in the Aquarium. Sharks, octopuses, rays, large and small fish.
