The tropicarium is Sweden largest aquarium (and zoo). On the other streetside you finde Kolmårdens Djurpark, Swedens National Zoo with animals like the Gorilla and Dolphin.

The Tropicarium was build in 1972 and was sold to todays owners in 1990. In 1972 Stig Gustavson bought the old grocerystore in front of the Djurpark and turned it in to Kolmårdens Terrarium, wich showed especially snakes and birds. 1990 then Kalle and Stefan Farkasdi bought that Trerrarium and renamet it in to tropicarium, where you go frome the desert to the deep ocean, with a 132.000 gallon sharktank.

After having payed the entrancefee we go to the left and meet the section for iguanas and tamarins, like the pygmy marmoset. Afterwards you look at the section fore amphibians and insects, like the axolotl. In the african savannah-section you meet leopard tortoises and the mungo. Next is the Alligatorlake, where you meet the mississippi-alligator. Across you have the South American rainforest exhibit with marmosets and birds. Then we have reached the snake-department with animals like the cobra and the retle-snake. Slowly going down in to the water we meet the freshwater fish's, like the electric eel and the piranha. Across there are the mongroves with fish's like the Mudskipper. Going in to the open sea we then meet the coral reef with clownfish's like Nemo and the the open sea with sharks. Going a bit ashore again, we first se the creatures og the shores and then the rays.


DE: Dies ist Schwedens grösstes Aquarium und gegenüber findet man den Nationalen Zoo. Insbesondere de Terrarienabteiung ist eine von den besten in Europa, aber auch die Aquarienabteilung ist super, u.a. mit einem 500.000L grossem Aquarium für Haie


DK: For mange er Kolmården lige med Djurpark (Zoo), men lige overfor ligger Sveriges største akvarium. Foruden et stort akvarium for hajer, er der en god samling af slanger, bare for at nævne nogle dyr.
