There is a rainforest section followed by a room full of the most popular animals — penguins. Right next to the fun and lively penguins, you can touch different types of starfish. Ever wondered what their textures feel like?

And finally, the main event of the aquarium — the underwater shark tunnel, where you can watch all types of sharks and tropical fish swim serenely past you on the other side of a thick piece of glass.
