Tropical Paradise in St. Petersburg
February 14, 2016 18:27


In recent years the museums of exotic butterflies have appeared almost in all major Russian cities. And it is grounded, as the nature does not spoil us with bright vivid colors and it would be desirable to look at its wonders. For this purpose there is a "Tropical Paradise" in St. Petersburg, it is a museum where you can see the birth of a butterfly, feed it and buy it.

The museum has become popular when it was open in the central part of the city. Now it is moved to Kupchino, in "Continent" Shopping and Entertainment Mall at the metro "Bucharestskaya". Though the legendary area, that is not long before so severe as described in the urban legends about Kupchinsk punks, functions by contrast and adds to the impression of the meeting with the tropical paradise. Here are a lot of butterflies - 35 species from all over the warm world: from America, Asia and Africa.

It is an unforgettable impression when an Amazonian butterfly Caligo with 25-centimeter wings sits on your shoulder. Especially if a beautiful giant Attacus Atlas flaunts somewhere near, the giant silkworm moth in the world from Asia. Nowhere in nature you will see them together. 

Butterflies flit among the living tropical plants and stones. A garden of stones with rubies, amethyst, jade, rock crystal and other gems in the form of inclusions in clumps was made for the exhibition "Flying Jewels". The main museum "exposure" is updated weekly, and cannot be otherwise: a butterfly is an ephemeral creature and its life lasts a few days. Here all this life is presented from the beginning to the end.
