The Deinotherium in Koktebel

The Dinothere in Koktebel is a place to rouse interest from afar. This bird park occupies two huge multi-faceted white spheres, at the foot of the Kara-Dag, not the giant of the eggs of monsters, 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, that gave name to the park, Dinothere.

The legend of the latter did not appear long ago. The labyrinth is said to be the source of the current which was created during the time of the Scythians, and the one who passed through it would gain wisdom and wealth (assuming spiritual purity). The Maze pattern showed that chalcedony plates are completely sunken in dust for centuries.

But in the early 20th century, the German August Hertz discovered these same tablets and were then defined by him, in the place where these are supposed to be. Then the legend says that a German engineer rushed home 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 maze were restored along with the sundial located inside the Universe.

The dinothere complex consists of three objects: the labyrinth of the great paleontological pavilion previously described and the pavilion of smaller birds. The labyrinth is full of details designed to acquiesce visitors to the atmosphere of ancient civilizations: cast copies of ancient coins, which can be seen on 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 toss a coin and ask for a wish.

The central place in the paleontological pavilion is a huge skeleton of Dinothere. Thanks to a wooden walkway, the Dinothere can consider in detail from all sides. Other exhibits in the pavilion show replicas of dinosaur skeletons, made in the museum’s workshop 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 is shown in Arabic and Roman, as well as develop the fauna on the planet with the change of the 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 placing them on the shoulders and heads of visitors. Of course, everything can be fed and played, if they wish. Here you can see 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, Red Heads of green grass Aratinga, Rozelle and the singer parrots 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 are in their way something no less beautiful and interesting than the birds.
