Well I feel it's a little over priced and it isn't really big. Could be a fun activity if you have young children with you. Do stay for the shark feeding, that's the only thing that was worth the money spent.

It's not as big as you expect. But you can feed fish there and take photos with the sharks ( for extra payment, of course). And I think the entrance fee is quite high.

Definitely a nice aquarium, not so far from the ones of much larger cities. Some species are very uncommon. Impressive tube in the middle of the large aquarium. Explanations available in English, which is not so often the case in Russia.

But as it turned out, the aquarium is a pleasant and entertaining attraction with loads of marine life to see and some activities on the side as well. I felt giddy as a child feeding... More

With limited activities in the off-summer-season in Adler (which is down the highway from Sochi), a visit to this large aquarium is worth making, especially if you have children in tow. Descriptions are written in both Russian and English, and there is an interesting variety of animals. Near the end of the museum is a vast cavern where you walk... More

It is a bit far from the city center, surroundings can scare you, the road is terrible there, but the place is very nice. For Sochi it is excellent, for whole Russia this is excellent, clean, well-organised, there are a lot of different types of fishes, turtles. Even you can feed some of them. using special food from the vending... More
