Istanbul Aquarium

We are in the world's largest thematic aquarium! Istanbul Aquarium is located in the Florya region.
In the prior few years, shopping malls have opened all over the city. On this occasion, the shopping mall culture began to form. Shopping alone is no longer adequate for visitors. Now visitors want to be part of an event and movement. For this reason, shopping malls make agreements with parks, restaurants and event companies.

Aqua Florya Mall took a big step with Istanbul Aquarium. Istanbul Aquarium, which is the biggest reason to visit the mall today, opens its doors for everyone from young to old.

This mall thinks it best to host its guests with its 900-seat amphitheater, seafront restaurants and parking lot. So now let's go back to the aquarium, which is our reason for visiting this delightful mall.

About Istanbul Aquarium

Istanbul Aquarium is the newest globally with its travel route, theming, interactivity, rain forest,and latest generation technology. This huge aquarium has a population of 17 thousand. We travel by following a geographical route from the Black Sea to the Pacific. You will experience a fantastic view starting from the Black Sea and heading towards the Pacific.
The sound and lighting systems of the areas were also planned by considering the thematic characteristics of the visited areas.

Diving With Sharks

Do you want to dive with sharks and rays in the main tank? The main tank has a capacity of 4000 cubic meters of water and 5000 animals live in it. And they are waiting to dive with you. "Istanbul Aquarium diving certificate" is given to those who dive after 30 minutes of diving activity.

Amazon Rainforest

This section is the most notable part of the aquarium. You can feel it very clearly with its temperature and humidity. Different, colorful, small frogs accompany you. There are even poisonous ones among them. "Dwarf caimans," the world's smallest crocodile species, are also here. The plants came here from Costa Rica.

Must-See Inhabitants

  • Red-bellied piranhas: They roam in herds, smelling a drop of blood from a distance of 2 km.
  • Lemon shark: It is the biggest creature in the aquarium. They live an average of 25 years and neither rest nor sleep. Because the gills of these creatures take oxygen from the water as they swim. But when they stop, the gills do not perform this function, and they die.
  • Russian myrtle fish: These are the rarest creatures since the dinosaurs. It is famous for its black caviar. It attracts attention with its bony scales.
  • Clownfish: they can live in anemones, which are poisonous sea creatures. Anemones release a toxic substance when the fish is touched. Thus, it poisons and inhales the fish around it. However, this poison does not just pass through the skin of clownfish.
  • Groupers: A grouper is a sea creature that can be a male at a certain period of life and a female at the other period.
  • Gentoo Penguins: These are precious penguins that can stay underwater for 7 minutes.
  • Anaconda: One of the most famous and dangerous snakes globally, the anaconda is 2.5 meters long.
