Overview
More
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!

There is lot of nice fishes to see. It is really big complex. We have spent there 2 hours. You can buy ice-creams in the entrance. Inside is really nice and nice cold, when outside is so hot.

Really enjoyed our visit and it passed a couple of hours on a hot day. Loads better than the sealife centres at home.

We went to the Aquarium to pass a rainy morning and was pleasantly surprised at the number and variety of exhibits. As it is in an old fort the layout is slightly strange but it works very well. Definitely recommended.

We was here with our 8 years old kid and she had blast. Great nature wonders just in reach of hand. Buildning is unique as well.

Fantastic array of creatures available to view and learn about. Enjoyed the fort setting and the views above. Tanks looked big and well kept.

Great place to take the kids. We found plenty to look at and found the place very interesting.... Some great views from the roof terrace too.

While we did enjoy our visit here, we felt somewhat disappointed. The way they built the aquarium into this old fortress is indeed very interesting, but it also means that exhibition halls are very limited in space. Some of the exhibitions are dull (for example...More

Located in an old fort, this aquarium has tight hallways and stairways, no air conditioning and decent (at best) displays. Having seen several top-notch aquariums in North America, this was a complete let-down. And there was only one small exhibit about the history of the...More

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
