Were in the aquarium 2 times. In 1 time they were in 2013. I’ll say that the aquarium is not the same. and this time. It is better to get to Eminönü and from there take the buses or BN1 or BN2.

From this attraction, I expected something more. May be It has more species, But was not expressed. So if you are coming jut only for akvaryum, I recomend change this Idea and go to Old akvaryum.

The staff were not kind at all, it's expensive and doesn't worth it, they obligated us to take a photo at the entry, how is it possible?

The aquarium placed in florya region near a shopping mall. Aquarium is good but a little small.the mall has a food court with a great view of sea. There is florya beach next to that mall that could be amazing in summertime.
