I found it interesting what they have in a such small place - if you visit the old town do not leave it out...

We only went in because the aquarium was widely advertised on posters in Porec and it seemed like a good idea at the time. Wrong! We noticed a horrible smell as soon as we walked in and the tanks were far too small for the...More

The tanks are too small for the fish, some were unable to swim more than a few centres. We saw a Nursehound and apparently they grow up to 1.6 metres long, and the tank was around a metre long. If fish could look miserable, we...More

We visited this aquarium while on holiday in Porec. My husband and a toddler. The fee for what they offer is too high. The biggest disappointment was no info tables or signs about the animals. Just the name and nothing else. They should at least...More

Great Aquarium spent about 45 minutes in there, Very clean unlike some we have been in with all the information on different species clearly marked. The entrance fee was 40 Kuna and for once was able to take reasonable photographs as the tanks were spotless

This was a nice display - almost like a pet shop and takes under 30 mins to have a slow walk round. Sadly the overwhelming smell from the WC ruined the experience!

loved it here small but worth paying to see fish and animals was hard to find in one of back streets

Our visit was very short. I was surprised how small this aquarium is. There's no water tunnel or any other significant features. Personally I wouldn't visit again.

My wife and I visited the "aquarium" while holidaying in nearby Zelena Laguna. The quality of species on offer was poor although they did have a couple of various reptiles. Would I go back? No.

My nine year old enjoyed the 20 minute visit looking at the tanks. That's all the positive I have really. The tanks are far too small for a lot of the creatures. The pike in particular looks sick and in a cruelly small space. Really...More
