Aquarium in Montpellier 

Just when the summer season for most tourists has drawn to a close in the south of France, Montpellier, the capital of Languedoc-Roussillon will see the opening of one of Europe's largest aquariums (opening in November 2007).

But l'aquarium Mare Nostrum will provide a sensory experience as big as the 24 tanks housing 3500 fish and marine animals representing nearly 300 species from around the world. Visitors will be able to enjoy environments as different as the Mediterranean Sea and the polar oceans, the China Sea and a tropical rainforest. From the instance that they step into the reception hall, visitors will be engulfed by the sounds of the sea, the surf and call of gulls. The aquarium is at the heart of the Odysseum district, in a complex that already hosts a multiplex cinema, ice skating rink, planetarium, and restaurants.
