Owner description: Aquarium Pula, a place where richness of the Adriatic is combined with the centennial military history of Pula. The Aquarium is placed in fort Verudela, part of the once powerful “Fortress Pula” of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. The historical fort is revived and enriched by more than 200 species of marine and freshwater fish, reptiles and amphibians. Meet our inhabitants in rooms, hallways, tunnels and moat of the once mighty fort and discover secrets of the aquatic environment!

“Cool experience”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

It was cool that the aquarium was in the old fortress, so along with information about the local sea life, there was a little info about what used to be found in the fortress. We stayed at a nearby hotel and it was the perfect way to spend an hour or two before dinner on a rainy afternoon.

“A little journey into the secrets of our oceans”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

If you want to learn about our seven seas and do not expect spectacular under water tunnels, ginormous sharks but a true picture of our seas with their beauty but also with an indication of the threads we impose on them, then this is the place to go!
One of the best maintained marine aquariums at the Mediterranean Sea with a dedicated crew who will do everything possible to provide a great experience to guests and students.

“love the tropical fishes”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

A nice collection of fishes from all over the world! At the time of our visit, there was only one turtle in the Rescue Center, but it's interesting to read the history of the turtles they saved.
