Educational fun for the whole family Editors' Note

Sochi Discovery World Aquarium is the largest oceanarium in the Russian Federation, and also one of the largest in all of Europe. A super experience for the whole family, the aquarium has become one of the most popular local and touristic attractions of late.

Regarding the marine life, visitors can expect to see all the usual treats such as shark feeding, dolphins, penguins and an array of crabs, octopuses and tropical fish, but sadly the overall collection is pretty much standard.

However, it is complemented by a wide array of freshwater fish species from within Russia itself, something that few other oceanariums can boast. Entry costs 500 Rubles at time of writing.
