Lisbon Oceanarium, Portugal

From series “The Coolest and Largest Oceanariums in the World”
Year: 1998.

There is a magnificent aquarium in the Parque das Nacoes in Lisbon, which is also one of the largest and most visited in Europe. An arrangement of the oceanarium is very amazing. It is equipped with five large aquariums, each of which represents a collection of one of the inhabitants of the oceans: the Atlantic, Pacific, Arctic, Indian and Arctic. Opening of the Lisbon Oceanarium was held in 1998. The sight is located in a building that was constructed specifically for the World Exhibition.

Lisbon Oceanarium, Portugal Since its opening, the place has gained the immense popularity among both locals and tourists. Currently, the Lisbon Oceanarium is visited by over a million people each year. There are more than 16 000 marine creatures belonging to 450 different species. The volume of the largest tank is 5 000 cubic meters. It is designed in such a way that creates an illusion of the open ocean.

This aquarium features more than a hundred representatives of marine life, including different species of tuna, stingrays, sharks, barracudas, moray eels, and even the mysterious sunfish. Around the huge central vessel, there are four others. One of the most unusual is an aquarium dedicated to the inhabitants of the Pacific Ocean. Here, visitors can see exotic fish and incredibly beautiful bunches of algae. In an aquarium dedicated to the Indian Ocean, the central place is occupied by a coral reef. It’s quite amazing to watch the life concentrated around it. Next - The Georgia Aquarium
