Well worth climbing the hill to the castle. Cheap entry. Great view of the city, bay and amphitheatre.

The Kastel is signposted but not particularly well, having said that, it is well worth the effort and climb. It offers fantastic views, grass to have a picnic or a snooze in the sun and is a cheap attraction. The museum exhibit was fascinating and poignant

Located in the centre of the old town up on the hill. Great views. Not to expensive to enter. Easy to find. Any stairs heading up the hill from the old town will get u there. Grassed area at the entrance where u can sit and relax. Walk around it or pay to enter. Worth a visit

It is not a problem if you skip this one, but it wasn't expensive nor a long program. It is located at the top of a hill, the view is not bad.

Great views of Pula and good place for a picnic. Entry is paid but you can walk around the perimeter of the castle and enjoy the views for free.

If you visit Pula, go to the Kastel. You get the best view over land and sea. Climb the top of the tower if you want to get an idea of the great surroundings and why Pula has been a popular place since before the Romans. The Castle had several exhibitions down in the cellars. One on the construction of... More

This is a fortress from the Venetian time, I think the 1500s. They give you a little booklet when you buy the ticket that helps with the info. It is a decent castle, but honestly the view wAs worth it! Great views of the water and pula. The walk up is a little bit of a hike, but you can... More

I never went inside Kastel, but there are small makeshift trails all around the outside of the Kastel that are worth exploring for great views of Pula and the Adriatic. They're very easy to find and it's a great place to watch the sunset! One trail connects to the Small Roman Theatre.
