“Great castle to visit”
Review of Kastel

Ranked #11 of 52 things to do in Pula
Attraction details
Reviewed October 8, 2018

Found this castle very interesting well worth the walk to it although we noticed some older people with reduced mobility struggling to get around as the outside is very uneven ground and the walkways were there has been railings had fallen away in parts and you do have to climb over a couple of small rocky areas to get round.

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.
Great views of Pula from the top of the castle, and very helpful staff.

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 Kastel has a reasonable entrance fee of 20kn. It is well worth the fee just for the views, especially from the top of the watch tower which you can climb. You can see the whole of Pula.

There was a WWII exhibit in one of the buildings which was interesting enough.

You can also walk around the grounds outside the castle which doesn’t cost anything.
