Aquarium Piran/Portorož - Slovenia

The public aquarium of Piran was founded in 1964.

In 2009, the city palace was fully renovated and the public aquarium at the ground floor was redesigned and extended. (PIA Studio d.o.o. Portorož).

Also worth mentioning is that archaeological finds (walls of an apsis) were integrated in the exhibition.

In October 2009, the aquarium was finished in cooperation with aquamare.
