The Dinothere in Koktebel

What places of Crimean interest do you recommend to visit? The Dinothere in Koktebel is a place to awaken interest from afar. This bird park occupies two huge multi-faceted white spheres, at the foot of the Kara-Dag, it is not the giant of monsters’ eggs, nor a laboratory of a mad scientist. It is not only the birds but also the descendants of the dinosaurs that survived on the planet. In total, there are about 70 Dinotheres parrots, brought from three continents. In addition, there is a skeleton of a prehistoric animal, which gave its name to the park, Dinothere in Koktebel. It is one of the places of Crimean interest that you can not forget!

The legend of the latter did not appear long ago. It is said that the labyrinth is the current source that was created during the Scythian era, and the one that passed through it, would obtain wisdom and wealth (assuming spiritual purity). The Maze pattern showed that chalcedony plates are completely sunk in dust for centuries. But at the beginning of the 20th century, the German August Hertz discovered these same tablets and was defined by him, the place where he is supposed to be. Then the legend says that a German engineer came home in a hurry like a rich man, and there he studied the ancient Greek culture.

The chalcedony plates were safely lost again during World War II, but the diaries and drawings of the Hertz labyrinth were restored along with the sundial located inside the Universe.

The dinothere complex consists of three objects: the labyrinth of the great palaeontological pavilion described above and the pavilion of smaller birds. The labyrinth is full of details designed to pamper visitors to the atmosphere of ancient civilizations: cast copies of ancient coins, which can be seen in the blind branches. If you manage to “collect” ten coins, you pass the maze. The hourglass is located in the center with a fountain, which, of course, you can throw a coin and make a wish.

The central place in the paleontological pavilion is an enormous skeleton of Dinothere. Thanks to a wooden walkway, the Dinothere can be considered in detail from all sides. Other exhibitions of the pavilion show replicas of skeletons of dinosaurs, made in the workshop of the museum in the United States.

The clock of the universe is the only clock in the world with a font and two faces: with Arabic and Roman numerals. The time of day as shown in Arabic and Roman, as well as develop the fauna on the planet with the change of time.

The bird pavilion is connected to the transparent paleontological corridor. The special charm of this, is the absence of cells and networks. Parrots can move freely and can be used by sitting on the shoulders and heads of visitors. Of course, everything can be fed and touched, if they wish. Here you can see the crazy colored parrots, which are rare, even in the world of experts, such as the rainbow aru aru zelenokrylogo Macao and the chrysotile-aru Nobilis soft, Red Heads of green grass Aratinga, Rozelle and parrots singers. The danger sign at the entrance of the pavilion encourages you to look at the ground, so as not to step on a lizard. They were here, and they are in their way something no less beautiful and interesting than the birds.
