  • Lots of turtles that my daughter enjoyed, plus all sorts of marine life. Also some good rehabilitation work for some injured large turtles 
  • got the impression that it is not so much, but on the contrary. thought it was a good aquarium! looked especially clean and well maintained. the different bins are clean. everywhere in different languages explanation. also for children. itself do anything, touch, always works. the location of the aquarium I found something less. It is situated in a kind of resort?

  • Actually I enjoyed it very much. There are lots of unique animals and plants here. You can have a great time even when it's raining. The only negative thing is that there were too many people, so it became a bit crowded.
  • This is not a fancy aquarium - but we enjoyed it very much as a family outing. Built in an old Austro-Hungarian Fortress - it's worth having a look if you are into turtles, adriatic fishes, jelly fishes. Overall we recommand it!
  • Wonderful facility, really cool location and easy to get to. Very educational showing fish from the region and giving some history of the fort. They also have sea turtle rescue. Would definitely recommend and return if I have the opportunity.
  • Amazing experience, greatly arrenged, great idea, perfect design except the roof, more stuff could be done and used, fortress is beautiful
  • Very good use of an old fort, lots of nice speicies from Adriatic sea and other places to see. Kids just loved it!
