From this attraction, I expected something more. May be It has more species, But was not expressed. So if you are coming jut only for akvaryum, I recomend change this Idea and go to Old akvaryum.

The staff were not kind at all, it's expensive and doesn't worth it, they obligated us to take a photo at the entry, how is it possible?

The aquarium placed in florya region near a shopping mall. Aquarium is good but a little small.the mall has a food court with a great view of sea. There is florya beach next to that mall that could be amazing in summertime.
