  • Ironically, it's a little bit bigger than home aquarium :) Quite old and limited fishes and facilities. Honestly, Varna deserves better one!  more »
  • It is near the Naval Museum and Planetarium, opposite the hotel Odessos. Of course, after having visited the gardens such as Dubai or Los Angeles, impressions the most feeble. But with children, and if you're in an aquarium, it is worthy. The underwater life of the Black Sea is presented very well. It is worth placing the Aquarium.

  • The Museum consists of three halls. One houses the Aquarium itself with aquariums, the other two stuffed fish and marine animals, preserved in alcohol clams, shells, etc., for inspection stop 30-40 minutes. Equipment, and exhibits are outdated, seriously places are covered with dust. Many visitors with children who do not notice the shabbiness of the establishment and admiring the fish.
