The dolphins put on a good show, they definitely worked hard and I got the chance to play volleyball with them too which was a great experience however the entire show only lasted about 30 minutes. The pool that they're in is extremely small and towards the end of the show you could see that one of the dolphins was... More

Less than 30 min of entertainment. The tank is very small and hardly space for the dolphins. We were hoping for more!

They offer great show! The dolphins are really nice and the whole atmosphere is wonderful! After the show you could go under the level of the hall and watch the doplhins swimming.

The shows run 3 times per day in the summer season - the dolphins, however, are so bored the rest of the year here that they do those with pleasure! The greatest of all is 'swim with a dolphin' experience (around EUR 100) that is the best for the kids on autistic spectrum.

I visited here last summer with my boyfriend who is Bulgarian but hadn't been swimming with dolphins. I was so excited... I adore animals. It was my impression that the dolphins would have a much larger area for swimming when not doing their shows but I highly doubt this after swimming with them. The pool was extremely small in which...

I suppose the children found this entertaining, but just had a dated and ex-socialist feel about it. Very amateurish and barely amusing.

Some of the stunts were really good while overall impression is quite average. Duration of 35 minutes only was really dissappointing. Also a cafe on the other side of delphinarium with windows to the pool to watch dolphins was a dissapointment as well - water was so cloudy that you could see dolphins only when they wereright next to window.

Took the family (2 teens and a 20 year old). It was interesting and they had a good time. It was worth going and the lady presenting did a running translation into several languages including English.
