Tour marine habitats from the Black Sea to the Pacific Ocean at Istanbul Akvaryum, home to over 1,500 marine species, from sea turtles and caimans to rays, piranhas, and blowfish. The recreated marine environments simulate the animals' natural habitats and provide a safe home for a range of strange and unusual creatures. If you have a diving certificate, you can join a dive with the sharks. The aquarium also features a gift shop and a restaurant, plus other attractions, such as a 5-D theater. Although outside the city center, the aquarium is easily accessible by bus or metro and includes plenty of parking for visitors arriving by car.
