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!

The aquarium is housed inside the old Fort Verudela built into the cliffs and there is a lot of building work going on outside so it does not look as though it is open on first arriving! However we persevered and found the entrance and...More

If you happen to be based at one of the Plaza complex of hotels in Veradula and have children, then this is a very nice bit of variety. It's not going to occupy you for too long, and the narrow ramps for the up and...More

This place is run down, smells of stale water, the tanks are disgusting and need cleaned and honestly you question why you have paid £20 to basically witness animal cruelty. Two huge tortoises were in what can only be described as a bucket with nothing...More

The aquarium is inside an old fort so the quirkiness of the old building adds to the character of the place. There is a notice that states no public funding is given and all money for the upkeep comes from ticket sales therefore understandably in...More

Good activity for raining day. Many different spices, nice but sometimes too narrow space. I'm sad because i didn't see crocodile.. :(

I've been to a few aquariums around Europe and this one was a great surprise. The aquarium is well maintained and with interesting selection of species. Make sure you don't miss the aquarium nursery. Great place to visit during a hot summer day.

Simply , you have to take a local bus 2a or 3a and enjoy the ride to the last stop . At the last stop and get out of the bus and for 3-5 minutes walk you arrive to the Aquarium, just follow the signs
