Aquarium Pula is located in the Austro-Hungarian fortress Verudela, which was built in 1886 on the peninsula 3 km from the centre of the city of Pula. Transforming the fortress into the aquarium has been in progress since 2002. The installation has been set in about 60 tanks on the ground floor, the moat, and the first floor of the fortress.

In an area of approx. 2000 m2 visitors can get acquainted with inhabitants of Northern and Southern Adriatic Sea, tropical marine and freshwater fish and with representatives of European rivers and lakes. From the roof of the fort, a unique view of the entire city of Pula and Istria stretches to the distant horizon, while in the moat you can enjoy refreshments on our summer terrace.
