  • Really enjoyed your presentation! One turned out to be too bad-nizzja photograph and shoot video. But the auction had managed to purchase a souvenir-a picture painted seal!

  • I'm never sure why animals are housed (trapped?) in such cramped conditions, particularly when adjacent to their natural habitat. This place, like the rest of Listvyanka, is a dirty, touristy hole. Avoid.
  • It's much better to see nerpa seals in the wild of the near lake Baikal
  • Very cute for seal show the price ia 350 ruble in may 2015 that I travel. Too bad they don't allowed to vdo or photo the show.
  • A bit too commercialised
  • Very unusual animals. Show every hour from 11 to 17. The show lasts for 30-35 minutes. Cool!!!
