Aquariums – the pavilion B, ground floor

The aquarium pavilion is devoted to tropical fishes and other animals, especially those which are not usually kept in domestic conditions. Here we find representatives of both marine and freshwater fauna.

The pavilion also houses interesting water plants. For instance the marine algae, in comparison with other plants, represent a very primitive development stage. Thanks to the steadfast conditions in the oceans they did not undergo any evolution like the plants which penetrated into the atmospheric environment on the land. The freshwater aquariums offer different examples of decorative arrangements. Among the water plants used here one will find both well-tried, well known species and more rare species.
