Europe's Largest Aquarium Reopens

Europe's largest aquarium, the Oceanografic in Valencia, reopened its doors to visitors today and is offering a special 25% price reduction on adult tickets until 10 July 2020.

The oceanographic aquarium had been closed since the corona virus crisis started in March but has now received the 'Safe Tourism Certified' seal by the Institute for Spanish Tourism Quality (ICTE) and visitors and workers will be protected by new health and hygiene measures.

There are more than 24 sanitising gel dispensers at entrances and other important locations, one-way routes, reduced visitor numbers, contamination prevention barriers, and visitors and staff must also wear face masks in the interior areas or when a distance of 2m (6½ feet) can't be maintained between people.

Today's move follows the reopening of the Science Museum and the Hemisferic building, also in Valencia's City of Arts and Science area, at the beginning of June and means the city's most iconic tourist attractions are all open again.

The attraction showcases 500 different species and 45,000 examples of marine life, including dolphins, beluga whales, penguins, walruses and hundreds of tropical fish. In addition to the aquatic life, you’ll find a grand hall with birds and beautiful gardens.

Glass tunnels and vaults take you beneath the tanks allowing you to see the aquatic life swimming above. You’ll feel just like you're under the sea! An incredible experience!
