Aquarium and Verudela Fort
The Pula Aquarium is located in the Austro-Hungarian fortress named “Verudela” at an altitude of 31 meters. Fortress Verudela was built from 1881 to 1886 and is an eponym of old-style fortresses with a rotary turret and two large cannon guns. In 2002, the Pula Aquarium was opened there. The Aquarium consists of around sixty pools. The ground floor, trench and upper floor are rich in Marine life of the Mediterranean, Northern Adriatic, tropical seas and freshwater fish originating from various lakes and rivers all around Europe. The Aquarium is also inhabited by the living fossils which were presented by the Evolution Exhibition. At the top of the fortress, there is a lookout with a beautiful view of the great city. The trench features a summer terrace which includes a coffee and grill bar.
