So it is logical that our next visit point is the Aquatika – freshwater aquarium.
This aquarium contains the largest and most attractive species of fish. The large aquarium shows fish from the sturgeon family: sturgeon, Russian sturgeon, white sturgeon…
Sturgeons are one of the oldest species of fish, dating back to the time of the dinosaurs.
