Home to more than 2500 Marine Organisms Jun 24, 2010
I had a chance to explore this beguiling aquarium during my visit in Crete. The aquarium, housed in a former American base is located at the small town of Gournes, some 15 kilometers away from the city of Heraklion. As seen in video presentation at the entrance hall, this impressive aquarium houses 2500 organisms of 200 Mediterranean species. Well of course I don't have to count, but the displays are quite large in number and it ranges from big hunter sharks to tiny seahorses, to sensational jelly fishes, to lobster, to different school of fishes. Another amazing thing is that, the aquarium is equipped with audio-visual equipment and touch screen camera making your viewing more interesting and knowledgeable.

It's quite a distance from Heraklion but the distance doesn't matter compare to what your eyes will lay-on in there.
