Gdynia Aquarium

A perfect place to visit on days when the weather forces you inside, the Gdynia Aquarium is stuffed with over 2,000 creatures and pint-sized guests will delight in seeing every one. Exhibits cover marine life from across the globe, such as the common snapping turtle, clownfish, electric eel and Amazon-dwelling giant arapaima, but also delve into the evolution of submersible technology through the decades. The third floor Baltic Room is devoted to understanding the sea literally right outside the Aquarium’s windows, but a history of the sea will take a backseat to the giant 44 kg cod – the largest creature ever caught in the Baltic – dangling over your head. There's also something called 'Akwarium pod lupą' which literally means 'Aquarium under the microscope' and which allows you to examine very small fish swimming through magnified glass. English placards are spotty at best, so parents be prepared to make up origins for the colourful tomato clownfish and the pancake-like moonfish. A large open-air deck offers the idea place to take in aquatic views and have a snack if the weather permits.

The poor animals have barely room to turn around in their way too small tanks. The fish were covered with fungus and their eyes were cloudy. The turtles had no land area in the habitats and were stressed out while trying to escape through the glass. It is ok for a museum with plastic models of fish nailed on walls or behind glass but it is far from ok being a zoo with live species. Not ok. Do not go there. Spend your money someplace else (24zł/adult & 16zł/child).
