  • A half-hour presentation in the small pool, around which stand customers. 2 seal, very nice without a smile to look at them is impossible. And when they sing-simply otpad))) could be more interesting, leading constantly keeps glancing at his watch and half-heartedly monotone voices room. Conveyor production. It would be great if you could before the show somehow presented a charming artists is a male name is so much years and a couple of words about the habits. Photography is strictly prohibited. You can after show surcharge sfotkatsja with seal or 3 frame on your camera.

  • Nerpinarij, like any other place this genre will be of interest and a storm of MI-MI-mishnyh emotions, because the seal will not leave anyone indifferent.

Children generally enjoy

  • 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!!!
