In addition to European flora and fauna, the aquarium also features exotic and tropical fish from around the globe. Stop by the sea turtle center to learn more about the rehabilitation program for injured reptiles before they're returned to the wild. Continue through the complex to see the evolutionary development through fossil displays. Be sure to stop by the special section dedicated to Croatia's and the Balkan region's population of freshwater river and lake creatures.

  • For sure a “must visit” if in the area. Its bigger then one would expect and the variety of fish and reptiles is amazing. They also have a fish nursery and sea turtle rehabilitation. Staff friendly and willing to explain. Bio & vegan bar. Good job to all!! Definitely a revisit if we come back.
  • Beautiful but to expensive, no family tickets and discounts. 20% more expensive than last year, there are still flyers to find with old prices that were acceptable, I do not understand what happened. I have been in a lot of similar places in Germany and Italy, there was more for less, or a lot more for the same price.
