The best way to know and experience the marine life (without diving deep into the sea) is to visit an aquarium. Cretaquarium is a public aquarium that offers a keen insight into the life of aquatic animals. This aquarium was made under a project by the former Institute of Marine Biology of Crete (IMBC). The aquarium is located near the town of Gournes in Crete, Greece, which is just 15 km east of the city of Heraklion. The aquarium was created as a part of marine park for research, education, culture, and recreation. Inside the aquarium, you will find more than 250 species of aquatic animals in 60 tanks.
