I recommend to visit the Tropicarium anytime, but especially in a rainy day! The tropical rain, the tunnel throu the acvarium, the sharks and the see cats are all awesome!

Located far away from the center, inside of shopping center. A very small place. A tour will take no more than an hour. My 7 years son loved it . But does not worse to driver there only for it.

Except the cashier was quite rude to us... animals are great, it is a good fun for family with kids or for a date. The place itself is a bit travel from the city centre, but there is a good and reliable public transport there.

We had a family trip to the Tropicarium. My kids (5 and 8 years old) loved it. There are a lot of well maintained aquarium and terrariums. Touching the rays and looking at the sharks was definitely our highlights. We spend about 2 hours there.
