Sochi Discovery World Aquarium

Visiting Sochi Discovery World Aquarium is a must-do when staying in the city. This is the biggest oceanarium in the country, as well as one of the largest in Europe. It consists of 30 aquariums spread across 6,000 square meters, containing five million liters of water. Both fresh and saltwater species are represented in the collection, showcasing the life of the underwater world. Located not far from the Aquapark Amfibius in the Adler district, this is a great attraction to add to a family outing for a day of fun.

Exhibitions of Rivers and Seas

Walking through the freshwater zone of the aquarium is quite the evocative experience. With a waterfall, an indoor tropical forest and bridges across ponds, inhabited by Koi fishes, it has a spellbinding atmosphere. A total of more than 100 species are displayed, originating from Australia to the Amazon and Ecuador. Among them you will find fish such as gourami, piranhas, discus and many more.

The saltwater area is just as exciting to visit. Here visitors can get a feel of what life is like under the sea in the underwater tunnel. On the other side of the glass the inhabitants are seemingly indifferent to their audience, going forth with their day and routines as always. Colorful plants and fish, starfish, corals and sea horses are just some of the species on show. Now and then a nurse shark will swim by and break the tranquility, accompanied by yellow pilot fish keeping her skin clean.

Magical Surprises

Not only fish roam the waters of Sochi Discovery World Aquarium. There is also daily entertainment in the aquarium tunnel. Two times a day, during the show called “The Underwater World of Mermaids”, the children will be astonished as the mythic mermaid swims around them. In addition to this, visitors can also watch the sharks being fed by the aquarium diver who swims around the predatory species.

From Radisson Blu Paradise Resort & Spa Sochi guests can easily explore the aquarium and other nearby attractions. After a day of adventure, retreat to the resort and enjoy the high level of service in modern surroundings.
