Supermarket near Pula Airport

Could anyone recomend a supermarket near Pula airport - looking to buy snacks and water before driving on to Plitvice.

Also will there be any supermarkets to stop on the way - I'm travelling on the highway via Karlovac, dont want to take a detour or come off the highway specifically for shops, but if we are passing by naturally that would be fine.

Many thanks

If you need water and snacks only, there is a shop on every gas station along any highway or motorway, at least every 50 km.

The nearest supermarket to Pula Airport is Mercator. It's on the righthand side between the airport and Pula, maybe a 5/10 minute drive.

Along with what was said in the previous posts, if you don't want to mess around shopping malls, you can get some water and snacks at the airport, but also some 15 minutes into your ride towards Plitvice at a gas station still in Istria, so hold on until the first gas station (all have a small shop with beverages, snacks, sandwiches, and some even with cooked food). Also, when in Rijeka (and the highway goes around it like a ring), there are big shopping malls along the highway if you need one.

A very nice stop is the Ravna Gora stop at the Tifon gas station, which is about half way between Rijeka and Karlovac - it is right in the middle of mountains, always with lower temperature than the rest of the country, with some really good local food.. Along the way, you can also make a stop at lovely Fuzine, also in the mountains just when you climb up after Rijeka, with a lake and some local cuisine (game, blueberry deserts at this time, and alike).

Thanks for all the replies - sounds like it wont be a problem to pick up something for the long drive.
