Aquarium
“Situated in an Austro-Hungarian old fortress, Aquarium Pula offers you a unique experience of exploring a really great composed exhibition of sea life while learning of the military history of Pula. The Aquarium is a sea turtle refuge and run by a family of a marine biologist. As such, very educative and professional content to explore for people who want to know more about Adriatic sea and city history. Perfect for kids with hundreds of interactive -educative games and features. It's even perfect for relaxing walk among thousands of exemplars of the sea life and cool atmosphere of the stone fortress. For us, the best details are the big sharks' aquarium, astonishing jellyfish of all kind and a perfect escape from the summer heat in a hug of fortress natural air conditioning, We highly recommend visiting this place.”
