Worth the bit of a climb up. I did it with a buggy not as bad as I taught it would be from reading reviews. Good views from Fort that's about it

The old fortress was built in a form of star and today it holds a small museum. There were two exhibitions when we visited - one was about Baron Gautsch (which was destroyed in 1914 by a sea mine) and the other one about roller skating in Pula. Good view of Pula and OK if you have done all other... More

This is the highest point in Pula and contains a look out tower with a spiral staircase to get a fantastic view. One is able to walk around and look at the roller hockey exhibition, and the exhibition on the first victim of WW1 in the Adriatic an Italian passenger ship, with artifacts from Glasgow etc, which have been salvaged

After the stunning amphitheatre this was a bit of an anti climax, but the excercise climbing the hill would have done us good! You can wander right around and take in some good views but thats about all there is, so if you like view points do it, but otherwise find something more interesting! The local markets are great!

A very interesting star fort. Location ( of course ) gives a slendid view over the city of Pula. Dont miss the ancient arena just outside the fort walls.

After all the castles in France it's nothing like that. Maybe nice to visit if you have spare time.It's a steep climb to the top. Not for disabled people.

If you get near to the front door, you might as well go in. Entrance fee was cheap, but don't expect much. The museum was tiny and eclectic with nothing to grab you more than a few glances. The main views can be done for free outside the building. The limited upside is a slightly better view from the top... More

Simple but impressive castle which gives fabulous views of the port and the city. Worth the entrance fee which if memory serves was only 20 Kuna (approx £2)
