We arrived at the fort from the Roman theatre; the walk up was well worth the views. We did not go into the fort. There was an interesting array of cannons on the approach.

On the hill in the center of the city there is old fortification used by all inhabitants during the past centuries. I recommend walking on the walls around and also to visit and look inside for entrance fee. View on the city and surrounding is excellent.

We only explored the outside of the fort and did not pay the entrance fee to go inside but it was still worth the time. There are several canon on display and you are awarded with some great views of Pula and its surroundings.

The castle was easily the best place we visited on our trip to Pula as the views at the top of the tower, and even at the lower levels, were amazing. You could see 360 degrees including the arena, the city, the harbour and the port. There was also a small museum which displayed some local artefacts from the time... More

After a sweaty walk up narrow alleys and steep stairways we reached the top of the hill where the Kastel is situated. The views from the top of the tower are breathtaking and there are 3-4 interesting exhibitions on the grounds. The children (8, 7 and 5) were really fascinated by the history of a children's tuberculosis hospital with ghastly... More

A good spot for taking photographs of all of Pula. A very informative museum on the treatment of tuberculosis and one on the Italian and German occupation in WW2. On the negative side, it is the highest point in Pula and a fair climb to get there and you cannot get a drink or an ice-cream which is a shame.
