This review submitted by NIELS JOHS LEGARTH IVERSEN,
October 2000


From Klaipeda old town take the short ferry trip to Smiltyné, right across the harbour. Known as Memel during the long German settlement period, Klaipeda has long been a strong maritime stronghold, and the aquarium has been built right into one of the circular forts from past times. The dolphinarium occupies a specially built newer building, and a third building is used for ticket sale and administration. Within the thick walls there are long corridors and small claustrophobic rooms; a modest marine museum occupies some of these rooms. While visiting the aquarium, I didn't take care write down the names of single fish species, but it is a quite comprehensive collection, spaced out on two floors inside a round central building within the old fortress. It is a general aquarium collection: there are both fish from temperate/polar regions and from the tropic waters Outside this building you will find several kinds of seals and sea lions, plus penguins. As for the dolphinarium, it has got 5 bootlenosed Black Sea dolphins. They make the usual series of tricks, such as wiggling, clapping the water with their tails, jumping through rings, playing ball and making high-pitched noises. When you have visited this place, you should take a bus down the Neringa, the narrow Couronian Spit. It has been made a National Park and is well worth seeing.
