Reviews about Nemo Dolphinarium
I strongly recommend everyone to bring their little ones to visit the dolphins. It’s a real blessing to communicate or just touch them. My kids were very satisfied.
Everyone loved it, and my son intends to go to the dolphinarium again. Wonderful show, but I think they overdid it with the soundtrack. The disco of the 90s and other old-fashioned Yury Shatunovs come to mind.
