The aquarium in Gliwice, Poland is part of the botanical gardens and tropical palm house. It is a place of solitude, good for thinking and reflection. At least I find it so; and judging from the visitors I encountered, I am not the only one who comes here to enjoy the quiet company of fish and rays. There is definitely something calming in the “interaction” between a fish swimming around, minding its own business and a person who finds these movements relaxing. Observing them helps to put distracted thoughts into perspective, rest the mind, and come out refreshed and ready to face the world again. I invite you to meet my friends in solitude.
