Sochi Discovery World Aquarium
As the biggest oceanarium in Russia and one of the largest in Europe, this family-friendly attraction consists of 30 aquariums containing five million liters of water. Both fresh and saltwater species are represented in the collection at Sochi Discovery World Aquarium, which showcases the diverse range of life in the underwater world.
Exhibitions of rivers and seasWalking 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 from as far away as Australia, the Amazon and Ecuador are on display. You’ll see gourami, piranhas, discus and many more.
In the seawater tunnel, you’ll see colorful plants and fish, starfish, corals and sea horses going about their day and routines as always. To break the tranquility, a nurse shark will occasionally swim by, accompanied by yellow pilot fish keeping her skin clean.
Magical surprisesTwice a day, the aquarium tunnel plays host to a show called “The Underwater World of Mermaids.” Children will be astonished as the mythical mermaid swims around them. You can also watch the sharks being fed by the aquarium diver.
Visiting this family-friendly attraction is a must-do when staying in the city. Located not far from the Aquapark Amfibius in the Adler district, the aquarium is ideally located when you are staying at the Radisson Blu Paradise Resort & Spa in Sochi. After a day of adventure, retreat to the resort and enjoy the high level of service in modern surroundings.
