Views are great. Entrance is cheap (5 Euros if memeory serves). There's an interesting - but slightly out of place - exhibition about a local shipping disaster.

The Kastel is located in the centre of town and is worth the walk uphill for views across Pula and the harbour. The written information and museum is disappointing however.

Enjoyed the quietness and the fresh air, combined with all the interest inside. There is ruins of a smaller amphitheatre at the far end of the Kastel that you can walk around to, but watch your feet.

We really enjoyed our time here and read with interest the very interesting information within the exhibition that was here. Take the time to walk along the ruins too and enjoy the view. The only thing missing would have been a (discreet) coffee shop / ice cream bar.

My favourite part of Pula. It is so calm, that you can sit up there and just enjoy nature, fresh air and view of city. And of course visit historical museum and learn about Pula history.

Ok we walked out to the top without water, silly us, but the views of Pula were the best we saw and at a reasonable cost!

A visit to the castle fortification in Pula is a great visit which offers fantastic views of the city and the amphitheatre and is recommended. Also combine this with a visit to the underground tunnels which run under the castle.

Otherwise known as Povijesni Musej - Istrian History Musuem. We climbed up for the amazing views over Pula - but did not visit the museum. You can still have great views from the hill outside, even sit on the cannons and walk across the drawbridge. The access is not easy, there's steps from Via Sergia. Worth it for the views.

Very old fort, impressive collection of canons, but no other atractions. 20 kunas (3 €) for entrance is overpriced just for a great view.
