The fort offers a nice sight of the city and surroundings after a good climb. It also has some military museum indoors concerning the First World War and worth a visit if you're in Pula since the entrance fee is also pretty low ;)

In several rooms there were exhibits to visit - when we were there, one was of area during WW 2; another about a children's hospital. Both were very interesting.

To enter the castle you have to pay the entrance fee. The fee was 20 kunas as far as I can remember. Inside the castle walls there... More

One of the biggest surprise of our trip was this castle. Tho I have been seen larger, it was a nice plus to our trip to center of pula. It has a nice small museum in it and you can see pictures of history of pula. The entry fee was realy cheap and definetely worth for visiting.

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
