Sochi Winter Olympics: The Aquarium

Yesterday, I went to the largest aquarium in Russia. OK, so it’s no London Aquarium but I discovered Sochi Aquarium is an excellent way to dodge the rain that has engulfed the mountains over the past three days. Just five minutes on the bus from Adler station, Sochi Aquarium is one of those places you feel a little bit odd going to without a child in tow. But I love a good ol’ aquarium tour now and again. This one’s got its fair share of piranhas, sharks, turtles and the obligatory underwater tunnel, which is always endlessly fascinating. Just watch out for the security guards (yep, them again), they don’t seem to like you hanging around too long in the tunnel….
