  • A small Exposition (Moscow Oceanarium anymore), sultry pavilions, it is possible to separately emphasize the dome inside the Aquarium, which accumulates carbon dioxide-be careful what you above, the more they be. Half of the pavilions is restaurants, so you can give the impression that a large aquarium. When enough of the high cost of cinema at an additional cost. In General, the sense of obmanutosti (probably because I have something to compare-like entertainment in Singapore by several orders of magnitude better

  • Beautiful Aquarium, it could use some more shadow. Dolphin Watch must not necessarily be, certainly other ways for the research.

  • As the truth is the longish day is done if you want to see it all but passed very entertaining xk are different things. To spend a day in this couple very well and you entertain quite interesting things, I first recommend l' hemisfèric which is the place as if it were a film that you put the peliculica, then visit the city of Arts and finally the Oceanogràfic which is very complete and is nice to see and take more time and do not miss the performance of dolphins which is very nice.

  • A magical place for all the senses... Very neat and well designed facilities. Panoramic 180° under the Aquarium of sharks. It is advisable to visit with children or couples.

Where to stay in Valencia

The Valencia city center is hugged by a river bed-turned park that leads down to the City of Arts and Sciences and harbor area. Stay along the river to be no more than a pleasant stroll away from some of the main neighborhoods and attractions. The popular El Carmen neighborhood, one of the oldest in the city, is known for its bohemian atmosphere and historical architecture, making it a popular area for daytime tourism and lively nightlife. For a selection of newer hotels and well-known shops, you can opt to stay in the city's commercial district of Colon Street, only a short walk from the old center and well-connected by the metro. For a laid-back, sun-filled retreat, El Cabanyal is a quiet residential neighborhood near the city's main beach.
