Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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!

I have to admit after reading some reviews on this website of the aquarium my expectations were low, thankfully the building work has now been completed and when I visited the rooftop was open for viewing. Lots of creatures to see here and I love that they rescue and help Sea Turtles. A very friendly member of staff personally explained about each turtle, what was wrong with them and what would be their course of recovery back into the sea. There's no cafe but there are chairs and tables and a coffee vending machine. I spent around 3-4hrs here and loved it.

My friend and I use to visit the Aquarium once a year with her 2 sons(4 and 5 year old this year) : every time the sets are different, amplified, with more species. The children are very amused and fascinated also with the reptiles. We grown ups are enchanted too. They've open to the public the roof of the fortress from which you can enjoy a wonderful panorama. 1.5 hour weel spent!!!!

It was my second day in Pula when I decided to go and visit Aquarium. Its located on the hill away from the city. But since my hostel was 15 mins walk from the Aquarium it wasn't far away.
Ticket for adults is 75 Kunas, which is ~ 10,5 Euros. So, since I've never been to Aquarium and I've heard a lot of good things about this one, I decided to visit. Best time to go is around 10-11am, to avoid any crowds.
Best thing about it, its located in an old fortress so it gives it a different look. Its nice incide, not to cold not too warm, but definitely great escape from high temperatures outside in August. There are lots of kinds of fishes in all kinds of tanks/pulls. It took me about 2-2,5 hours to see everything. You can also see some small sharks from open pull and pet sea turtles that are kept there for recovery from different injuries. Also, you can go on top of the fortress and take amazing photos of Pula and landscape.
There is also a cafe inside in case you want to take a break and have a nice cold dring.
Definitely recommend, even if you've seen Aquariums before. It's worth every minute!
