    1. Heraklion: CRETAquarium Admission Ticket

    Venture into the ocean’s depth with a 1-day admission ticket to the CRETAquarium. One of Europe’s largest aquariums, over 2,000 sea creatures lice the CRETAquarium's 60 diverse habitats. Delve into the caves and crevices of the Mediterranean, where stingrays and rock-like scorpionfish slither about. Pop out into the open ocean, where menacing sharks circle, waiting to be fed. Get up close and personal with jellyfish and schools of vibrant tropical clownfish through shallow, open-topped tanks, which allow a new viewing perspective of well known species.  Above all, gain a new appreciation for the unending diversity of the world’s most mystifying environment. When you’ve had your fill of looking at the ocean’s residents, why not pop in for a dip? The CRETAquarium is, fittingly, right on the beach.

Great aquarium. Beautifully designed large pools. Everything very well maintained. There was a long line that we wanted to join. However, a member of staff came to me immediately and let us know that I am quite pregnant. Stupid for the others, but very good for me and incredibly attentive from the employee. Thanks very much!

Gorgeous large widescreen screens. You can see practically everything that is not hidden in the reef or crevices. Beautiful fish and shark. The swimming turtles were a big surprise. I recommend it to everyone.

Overall very good aquarium. Also very informative. Clear recommendation. However, due to the corona rules, the waiting time in front of the aquarium was around 1 hour.
