Sevastopol Sea Aquarium-Museum – the oldest aquarium in Russia

The Sea Aquarium-Museum was founded in Sevastopol in 1897 on the initiative of Academician Kovalevsky on the basis of a biological station. That time employees of the station used to read lectures about the life of the inhabitants of the Black Sea. Today it is the oldest aquarium in Russia! Incidentally, at the end of the XIX century it was possible to visit the Sea Aquarium-Museum free of charge.

In 1994 the exposition of the Sea Aquarium-Museum was expanded. Although it still remained small and cozy. In its five halls one can see not only those who live in the Black Sea, but also representatives of coral reefs, tropical waters, turtles and reptiles (pythons, iguana). In addition to these, there are sea fishes dangerous for human: sharks, electric eel, piranha, fish-stone, moray eel and fugu fish.
