In a city surrounded by bodies of water, the new Istanbul Akvaryum, or aquarium, offers a peek at what lies beneath.

At the aquarium (Senlikkoy Mahallesi Yesilkoy Halkalı Cad. No: 93; istanbulakvaryum.com), which opened in July, visitors start by following a route lined with tanks of Russian sturgeon from the Black Sea, then walk through a replica of what curators imagine Noah’s Ark to have been like.

Later comes a selection of species found in the Bosporus
