Overview

Aquarium Pula, a place where richness of the Adriatic is combined with the centennial military history of Pula. The Aquarium is placed in fort Verudela, part of the once powerful “Fortress Pula” of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. The historical fort is revived and enriched by more than 200 species of marine and freshwater fish, reptiles and amphibians. Meet our inhabitants in rooms, hallways, tunnels and moat of the once mighty fort and discover secrets of the aquatic environment!

Good experience for families with small children. For them this is very interesting. Interesting location, but all together this place is pretty expensive concerning to what they have to offer..

We’ve been to a few different aquariums along the coast - this was a favorite. It’s located in an old fort and you get to walk through some narrow tunnels and hallways to observe exhibits. It’s a creative use of an old historic site, and...More

Spend 2-3 unforgettable hours in the aquarium located in the old Austro-Hungarian fortress on the Verudela Peninsula. A few months ago three new large aquariums were opened. I was particularly interested in the sharks.

Simply , you have to take a local bus 2a or 3a and enjoy the ride to the last stop . At the last stop and get out of the bus and for 3-5 minutes walk you arrive to the Aquarium, just follow the signs
