aquarium of Rhodes
The Aquarium of Rhodes is located at the
northern most tip of the Island, a few steps from the city center.
It is one of the most important marine
research centers in Greece.
The original building was constructed in 1935 and
is a blend of local and Art D?co architecture, combined with nautical elements.
In the underground aquarium the visitor can
see many of the species living in the Aegean Sea. The original interior of the
Aquarium, which has been preserved, is decorated with porous rocks and natural
seashells, in order to create the impression of an underwater cave.
The Aquarium of Rhodes welcomes many
visitors of all ages daily, giving them the opportunity to admire the
characteristic marine species of the area, in a unique setting.
