The Aquarium of Crete is located in the town of Gournes, 14km from the city of Heraklion, and first opened in 2005.
The creation of CretAquarium or also known as Thalassokosmos was a dream come true not only for the research community, but also for the local Cretan society. The Αquarium is an expert in presenting species and ecosystems of the Mediterranean, a sea of unique biodiversity that gave birth to ancient marine civilizations.
Our second summer trip for this year was to CretAquarium and it gave us a chance to discover many sea inhabitants of the Mediterranean. The tour in the Aquarium was very exciting and we got the chance to learn new interesting things about marine life.
After this beautiful experience, we took a break and had our coffee and dinner, enjoying the sunset sea view.
