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!

It was our last day on this trip and we did not know what to do so we got a cab to the aquarium We were glad we made the effort. It was surprisingly good. Iit is in an odd location - but most enjoyable.

Really enjoyed our visit, don’t believe the poor reviews from 2017. Well worth the entry fee of 100 kuna. Conditions for the fish are good and tailored suit the individual species. People say it smells but what do you expect in a huge aquarium. The...More

The aquarium is in an old coast artillery fort from the Austro-Hungarian Empire (over 100 years ago). Amazingly wide variety of sea life without the big showy displays found in commercial aquariums. All the information was displayed in at least 4 languages and some was...More

Nice place to spend a few hours to get away from the pool. Lots of different fish to see and all set in an old fort with fab views from top level. Well worth a visit.

This place isn't worth the money and the travel. The animals were in super small tanks and the tanks weren't maintained at all. There were no signs on which way to go. The atmosphere was depressing and there was a stuffy smell. It felt really...More

This was a gem of a find! Bigger than expected with lots of exhibits. We particularly enjoyed the sea horses and the sea turtles. Located in an old fort, it offers amazing views from the top. Well worth the visit for any age.

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
