Although small by international standards, Sea World (Morsky-Svet) is the largest of its kind in the Czech Republic, and makes for a pleasant excursion with young children.
The largest Sea World in the Czech Republic is located at the fairground in Vřstaviste, and is accessible by tram from the city centre in around 20 minutes.
A giant fish tank containing 100,000 litres of seawater, and rising 8 metres, is decorated with 4.5 tons of coral.
Special lights illuminate the tank, replacing the natural sunlight during the day and the moonlight at night.
In this aquarium are an array of beautiful fish feeding off the coral.
There is also a Sand Shark (Odontaspis Taurus), one of the most feared sea predators after the Great White Shark. The Sand Shark grows to a length of 3.5 metres and can weigh up to 180 kilos.
Two more tanks at Sea World house carpet sharks, rays with poison-carrying spines, 2 metre long moray eels and a variety of other fish.
Allow a couple of hours your visit including travel time.
