September, 12 Galaktika Garden
Galaktika Botanical Garden is finally ready. Due to logistical, regulatory and other issues, Sports and Cultural complex "Galaktika" will open for public by progressive stages, with Shopping Gallery and Botanical Garden at first and Aquapark, Aquarium, Ice-rink and bowling at the end.

When "Aquamarine Projects" started "Galaktica" design we understood the importance of the garden in that remote region ("Galaktika" is built in Kogaly, city in Russia with latitude of Northern Alaska) where deciduous trees are rare and the level of oxygen is less then normal.

Galaktika gardens have subtropical trees and flowers.
The Aquapark and other Galaktika areas were tested for the first time today. It has a wavepool, a flowrider, 3 slides and a "lazy river".

The concept and design for the whole "Galaktika" system was created by Aquamarine Projects in 2012-2013. The complex will be open very soon and it has 3 special areas (Aquapark, Aquarium and Botanical Garden). It is located in Kogalym, a small city (55.000 citizens) in Western Siberia region of Russia by the oil company Lukoil.
