Animal lovers and those fascinated by life underwater will not want to miss out the Paris Tropical Aquarium when compiling their sightseeing itinerary.
The stunning aquarium is located on the ground floor of the Palate of the Gilded Door, and inside visitors will discover more than 5,000 animals from around 350 different species.
There are a variety of exotic sea creatures, and they are so numerous that 60 different aquariums are needed to contain them.
Different animals are categorised by their species and geographic origins, so if you are looking for a particular fascinating creature, it should be easy to find.
The aquarium has an interesting history in itself, originally being created in 1931 for the Colonial Exposure of 1931, and is one of few aquariums in Paris.
It was intended to exhibit watery fauna from different countries and is of historical significance because it was the only building intended to remain after the World Fair.
