In addition to European flora and fauna, the aquarium also features exotic and tropical fish from around the globe. Stop by the sea turtle center to learn more about the rehabilitation program for injured reptiles before they're returned to the wild. Continue through the complex to see the evolutionary development through fossil displays. Be sure to stop by the special section dedicated to Croatia's and the Balkan region's population of freshwater river and lake creatures.

  • Nice aquarium with some beautiful fishes. Good to see that they are upgrading some of the rooms. The aquarium is situated in an old fortress of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. On top of the old fortress you've got a great view over the surroundings. 10/10 would visit again!
  • Nice aquarium to spend a rainy day. They could take better care of some fish in my opinion. But most looks good. There are a lot of educational signs everywhere so it's extra fun and learning for the kids. They also have a seaturtle rescue center.
  • Nice place to be on a rainy day. Hosted in Fort Verudela. Entrance ticket costs 75 kn. Free parking. Very crowded. Lots of species of fish and other marine fauna. Old turtles in the rescue center made my day.
  • Nice Adriatic sea life presentation.
  • Nice aquarium with many species. The sharks and medusa are impressive. It's better to come earlier to avoid long queues.
