  • The Sevastopol Aquarium enables its visitors to get acquainted with the different types of underwater inhabitants. Examples of corals and algae, crabs and sea stars, as well as many fishes of different size, colour. In addition, the Aquarium exhibits are rare (in the form of museum specimens) representatives of sea fauna. Visit the Aquarium delivers a lot of the most positive emotions and, at the same time, turns out to be informative.

It was founded in 1897, when the Sevastopol biological station, which is not only the oldest Russian station, but also fifth in the world by the time of its creation.

He has made construction of a special building for the biological station with Marine Aquarium on the shore of the Sevastopol Bay, on the former site of Mykolayiv batteries. To organize the construction at the proper level, A.o. Kovalevsky specially traveled abroad-to France, in Italy, studying setting the case on biological stations in Naples, Villafranca, in the Mediterranean, Arkarone, on the Atlantic coast. At that time the Aquarium had only one room, where the inhabitants were shown the Black Sea. Premises Marine Aquarium acted on the northwest side of the building in the form of a quadrangular terraces. Inside were 7 pristennyh aquariums (totalling 18 m3) and a central pool to 24 m3. All the aquariums were filled with the Black Sea. The Aquarium was opened to public free 3 days a week.

  • Long time since I visited our aquarium. The improvements are noticeable. Really liked the design of aquariums. Impressed by the light in the corridors and trim. Excellent collection of South American fish. The main disadvantage-lack of plates with the names of the fish. And book reviews.
