I am really not playing role of an animal lover but I was actually not decided to see a seal show in Russian language but a learning event. I entered the place just after arriving to Listvyanka and purchased a ticket 2 minutes before start,...More

i thought i could have learned something about the seal in this place but i was totally wrong. the place gave solely a "show". 4 seals in a miserably small tank doing various kind of tricks. a perfect way to waste 30mins and 500rubles. maybe...More

I only went because I had an extra free day in listvyanka. The tricks the seals do aren't anything special. With such tiny tanks, I'm certain the seals aren't treated very well. With this, and the 500RUB entry price, stay away.

I enjoyed the interactions between the seals and the trainer and they are well trained, highly intelligent animals. I was a bit surprised as to the size of the tank, slightly small for four seals. There is no English, not an issue but don't expect...More

There are not many chances to see these cute fatty animals in nature because they are very careful an as soon as they see people they hide. So this is the best way to see them close. It's 500 rubles per person to get in,...More
