The castle is quite a climb upwards but is worth it for the views over Pula and the Arena. If you don't want to go into the castle you can walk round it for very slightly less impressive views but I thought the castle was...More

The best part about the castle is the views from the top. Not much about history of castle, not much to see inside. Great views from the top. We did go to a Croatian Pink Floyd tribute show there one evening and that was very...More

I visited the kastel both during the day and night. It has a lot more atmosphere in the evening and becomes a great view point. Especially to see the cranes in the port that are illuminated and fireworks if your are there during film week...More
