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.

A bit difficult to find with lots of steps and upward streets to get to. The lady at the enterance was so friendly and helpfully in her broken English. It housed some exhibitions of maritime sorts which was fascinating but when you go outside the climb up again is worth it for the stunning view over the city of Pula

Old fort with a very small exhibiton about Pula as a important port. Climb the outer walls for a fantastic view over Pula and the surronding areas. The view alone is well worth the entrance fee.

This a good example of a smallish 17thC fort, and still has quite a few old guns, though they aren't mounted very well. You can climb up to the top of the walls which is pretty good, but the big attraction really is the great views you get of the surrounding area. Certainly worth the climb up there!

Entrance fee was a bit much considering there wasn't that much on display in the "museum", but the views of the city below were fantastic.
