Pula contains a handful of important cultural monuments and a rich cultural heritage. One of the interesting places that tells the story of the past is the Navy Cemetery, created in 1862 after Pula was proclaimed the main port of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The area of the cemetery includes 22,000 square meters, and 150,000 people are buried there. In 1960, the cemetery was declared as a memorial cemetery, and in 1990 it was renovated, and is now included on the list of monuments protected by the Hague Convention. The cemetery has preserved its cultural and monumental heritage and kept its urban form. The cemetery features memorials for NOB fighters and the victims of the Second World War, and commemorative features of Austro-Hungarian soldiers from the First World War.
