Strange looking building, but very clean and well kept. Seals are a delight and seem happy. Only presented in Russian, but that didn’t stop the enjoyment

This place is suited for children, it is a mere show with seals doing different tricks, and that's all. It's a bit sad at the end, and you don't get the opportunity to learn anything about these animals.

I am really not playing role of an animal lover but I was actually not decided to see a seal show in Russian language but a learning event. I entered the place just after arriving to Listvyanka and purchased a ticket 2 minutes before start,...More

its a horrible place, its like a circus, they make them do tricks and even carry plastic riffles... its not allowed to take pitures inside because i think they dont want people to share what happens inside

It's a thing you can do easily in Listvyanka, as the show takes only 30 minutes of your time. The nerpas are very cute and even though the place is quite small, we enjoyed ourselves. PIty we couldn't take the pictures, as the nerpas are...More

This was an entertaining interlude in our afternoon in Listvyanka. We had been unable to see wild seals while diving or on various boats so our only choice was the Nerpinary. I am never too keen on seeing captive creatures and these seemed to have...More

I only went because I had an extra free day in listvyanka. The tricks the seals do aren't anything special. With such tiny tanks, I'm certain the seals aren't treated very well. With this, and the 500RUB entry price, stay away.
