Welcome to Aquarium Pula, where in a unique way the richness of the Adriatic is combined
with the centennial military history of Pula. The Aquarium is situated within the 130-year-old
fort “Verudela”, once part of the powerful defence complex “Fortress Pula” built during the
rule of the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy. The historical fort is nowadays inhabited by
hundreds of fish species from the northern and the southern portions of the Adriatic and
several tropical marine and fresh water species, as well as fish from Croatian lakes and
rivers. Meet our inhabitants in rooms, hallways, tunnels and the moat of the once mighty fort
and discover secrets of the aquatic environment!
