CRETAquarium Thalassókosmos

Experience between Hersonissos and Heraklion

Visiting the biggest Greek aquarium and one of the largest in Europe is an ideal opportunity to gain knowledge about the marine environment.

For someone who wishes to explore and learn more about the Mediterranean Sea, this is the right place to start. It is an aquarium that includes hundreds of species and thousands of fish and creatures that live in the bottom of the sea.

The visitor has the opportunity to observe their different shapes and colors, their behavior, as well as their needs. While there is no doubt that it is an ideal place for kids. It opened its doors in 2005 and from that time it composes a unique area that promotes education and knowledge for the marine environment.

It was founded by the employees of the former Institute of Marine Biology of Crete, while it is a creation of the Hellenic Center for Marine Research. Thus, it includes the knowledge and the specialization that was developed for many years by the Greek Aquatic Scientists.
