Lisbon’s Aquarium (Oceanário de Lisboa) was recently voted the best in the world according to TripAdvisor users. The 2015 Travelers’ Choice Award winners by TripAdvisor were revealed recently.
The Lisbon Aquarium has 11579 reviews from which 10745 either classified it as “Excellent” or “Very good”. These reviews made Lisbon Aquarium to the first spot in the best aquariums list in the world. Last year, Lisbon Aquarium got the second place, and this year, changed places with Georgia Aquarium in the United States. The variety of marine species (animals and plants) and the education on nature and water conservation and preservation are the strong points of the Lisbon Aquarium. It is also considered the number 1 attraction to see while in Lisbon and should be visited at least half a day, according to the reviews of previous visitors.
Travel website “Travel Pulse” shared the news about the Lisbon Aquarium and describes it: “While the Oceanário de Lisboa opened fairly recently, in 1998, the building has built up quite a varied number of sea creature species, and the aquarium has a focus on teaching people about the animals and how to protect them.”
