Northern Europe's largest and arguably most beautiful aquarium opens to the public

By Leonard Ho - Posted Mar 26, 2013 09:00 AM
The new Denmark's Aquarium opened its doors this month. Visitors can explore seventy aquatic exhibits totaling 7,000,000 litres (1,800,000 US gal), all housed in one of the most visually arresting buildings (aquarium or otherwise) anywhere in the world.
Northern Europe's largest and arguably most beautiful aquarium opens to the public

The Blue Aquarium is gorgeous all day long. Look carefully at the foreground. The aquarium changes its landscape as the tides come in and out! How ridiculously amazing is that?

Last May, we reported that construction was underway for the Denmark's Aquarium (nicknamed The Blue Planet).  Not only was The Blue Planet destined to become Northern Europe's largest aquarium at 9,000 m2 (97,000 sq ft), but it was also easily in contention for the title of world's most beautiful aquarium.  The artist renditions and architectural models were jaw-dropping.

We're happy to report the completed aquarium is as beautiful as (if not more so than) initial reports.  The Blue Planet not only houses an impressive collection of exhibits; The amazing metal-clad structure manages to harmonize perfectly with nature around it.  The land and sea are every part an extension of the man-made object.

We share photos originally posted by Gizmag proving The Blue Planet is worthy of praise by aquatic life lovers, aquarists, and admirers of architecture alike.  It's simply stunning.
