A very accessible monument, and visitors are free to wander the ramparts without restriction or needing a guided tour. There are great views across the harbour and the town, and some of the pathways test your climbing skills.

Great place to visit, with a lot of variety. Interesting section on boxing in Croatia. Excellent exhibition pre 1st world war to post 2nd world war. Only thing that could improve would be some translation for the interviews of people taken to the concentration camps....More

A great place to visit an interesting display on boxing and Pula. The historical section about the wars was really informative. It has no signs the kids could not touch but they can not and got told off so be aware.

The view that you get form the tower is worth the price of admission but not much else is. There is a boxing museum and an anti-fascist presentation within the walls. This is not an easy climb.

The castle offered a panoramic view of pula and the view was really nice. There is not much to see or appreciate within the castle though. Its beautiful, but not that great. Dont remember the entrance fee - i think 20 or 30 kuna pp.

This was the first place we visited in Pula & we found it rather underwhelming. Apart from the views & a few cannons there isn't much else to see. You cannot see inside unless you pay to visit the Museum of Istria which is currently...More

On the top of old town there is this fort. Entrance fee is small but the view from fort is great. Also in the fort there are weapons from WW I & II and cannons from 17/18 century
