Umag aquarium

Umag is a small town in Istria on the northwest coast of Croatia, close to the borders with Slovenia and Italy. It is popular with tourists.
We have been to Umag three times, at the beginning of April for the international morel festival, and even then there were tour buses.

It took us three visits to find the aquarium.

The entrance to the aquarium is under a shopping mall named Aquarium in the center of the town.
