AquaDom - Largest Aquarium In The World

One of the finest creations – AquaDom in Berlin, Germany is the largest acrylic glass cylinder in the world. Situated in the Radisson SAS Hotel, the 25-meter high cylindrical formation stands on a 9 meters elevated platform, with over 11 meters of diameter. This marvelous aquarium contains 900,000 liters of seawater and hosts 2600 fish of 56 species.

Constructed by the U.S Company, Reynolds Polymer Technology, the AquaDom was built at a cost of 12.8 million Euros. Eventually, it was opened to the public in December 2003. The aquarium is a perfect blend of huge amount sandblasted glass, which lends a lucid touch to the lobby. Visitors can enjoy their trip through the aquarium in a glass-enclosed elevator that takes them to the sightseeing point. There are two full-time divers, for maintenance of the fish tank as well as feeding the fish. Some of interior suits and rooms are especially designed to offer a privileged oceanic panorama of AquaDom.
