  • 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
  • A bit too commercialised
  • 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.
  • Tickets: Adult. -Polymeric by-products Det. -400r. Presentation och cool, lasting 30 minutes. Next manjugazin souvenirs. You can take a picture with a seal for a fee.
