  • Recently visited the aquarium in Dubrovnik with my partner and our 8 year old daughter. Managed to kill an hour and that was pushing it. Not the best selection of exhibits but our daughter enjoyed it....  more »
  • This was surprisingly expensive for what it is, which is two rooms with a few very small tanks. My 3 year old daughter love aquariums but she was done and bored in about 15-20 minutes here. Admittedly...  more »

  • Very nice place! The aquariums are beautifully fitted into the ancient building. Good information in local species
  • Small aquarium. Would love more info on the animals. Nice little trip and cheap.
  • it's smaller than expected and i would wish for more information about the animals - there wasn't really much explained on the info plates. nice for spending an hour in there on a rainy day though.
  • The aquarium is horrible all the animals have way to less space it's very dark so you can hardly see them and the "epic" music gives you a bad feeling like you're in a prison of the see. And 60 Kuna is expensive for that small aquarium too. I regret that I support this in my country they treat the animals way better.
  • Very small aquarium, 10 min should be more than enough to check the whole place. And those fishes made me feel sorry for them, they keep them in such a small water tanks.

Where to stay in Dubrovnik

One of Croatia's major tourist destinations, Dubrovnik remains one of the most expensive cities in the country, especially if you wish to stay in the old town at peak season. You can choose from upscale hotel rooms just east of the old town, but for budget-friendly beds you may have to go as far as the outskirts of town. Many locals rent small rooms in their private homes, so look for rental signs in windows or check with the city's tourist office.
