Aquarium Pula is located inside the Austro-Hungarian fortress Verudela which was built in 1886, on the Verudela peninsula. The installation of Aquarium Pula showing representatives of Adriatic flora and fauna, as well as protected and toxic marine organisms, consists of about 60 tanks placed in the area of approx. 2000 m2. Here you can, among the other ones, see strictly protected species - such as the Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta caretta) or Neptune Grass (Posidonia oceanica), as well as endemic species of the Mediterranean and the Adriatic Sea like the Noble Pen Shell (Pinna nobilis) or a coral, Dead Man's Fingers. (Alcyonium palmatum). Since 2006. within the Aquarium Pula and the association called Marine Educational Centre Pula operates the Marine turtle rescue Centre - the first centre of this kind in Croatia! Here sea turtles, which are among the most endangered organisms of the world, get care and treatment, while the Centre is also engaged in educating the local population, especially fishermen who often encounter sea turtles. The roof of the fortress Verudela offers a breathtaking view of town of Pula and the whole Istria.
