Housed in a historical, Austro-Hungarian fortress, Aquarium Pula hosts an array of local aquatic wildlife, a sea turtle rescue center, and a series of related exhibits.

Where to stay in Pula

Although Pula offers a limited choice of mid-range hotels in and around the old town, you can still stay affordably near this part of the city by renting a room from one of the local families. Check the city's main tourist office for a list of registered owners, or look for window signs advertising rooms for rent. The most popular resort hotels remain in the well-developed areas near the sea, easily reachable from the city center by car or public bus.

  • Located in an old Austro-Hungarian fortification, the Pula aquarium is a nice place to visit for a couple of hours. Good variety of specimens, mainly from the Mediterranean region and some nice exhibi...  more »
  • Very good aquarium but ad it's based in an old fort has potential to be excellent, looks like work is ongoing so fingers crossed.  more »
  • Definitely a must go, especially if you have kids. It is a good size aquarium with lots of species, nicely placed in an old fortress.  more »

  • Nice time here with children. There're numbers of sea life, ray, turtles, sharks and octopus. Good set up in an old fortress. Recommended for a family with young children. Will be a relaxed time for parents. :)
  • Really beautiful aquarium unique one. Placed in old austrohungarian fortress we love it.
  • Nemo is here ☺ my son enjoyed a lot. For me very impressive was the shark dance & fish nursery.
  • Ridiculous! Expensive and there's nothing to see. The tanks are tiny and dirty. The animals are held in horrible conditions, they are barely alive. The place is dark and smells horrible. The posters are worse than an elementary school project, they look more like a joke in 2017 than a serious aquarium! Guards by the entrance of the park also won't let you enter, you have to find parking in the area and walk to the aquarium (500meters) This place should be closed! DOES NOT WORTH THE MONEY OR YOUR TIME!
  • Reasonable attraction. Not the best aquarium ever but a highlight of a fairly dull resort if you don't care for sport.
