Ocean Park Aquarium

A 3,000 square meter aquarium. There are several tanks of fish to look at, including a tunnel-tank that patrons can walk under, allowing tiny sharks to swim over your head. It is best to visit during feeding time when the carnivorous fish make a gruesomely interesting scene. Be sire to feed the turtles in the koi pond -Use the RUB10 vending machine to purchase fish food.


A more Western-style shopping experience. Galaktika includes hundreds of clothing stores, sports stores, computer stores, and an "Okey" store (which is comparable to a Walmart). Galaktika also features an aquarium, a respectable food court, and other diversions.

About Krasnodar

Krasnodar is one the most important historical and cultural centers of Southern Russian and the Northern Caucasus region. Nowadays, it has a population of 775,000 people. It is more ethnically diverse than Northern Russia, with many Georgians, Armenians, Chechens and Ossetians settling in the area over the years of political turmoil. Adyghe and many Jews inhabit the city as well. The renovated tsar-era buildings make this city very pretty, also most travelers only need a day or two to see all the major sights.
