Aquarium Pula is a destination that will attract children as well as adults. Alongside the aquarium display, that in a uniquely interesting and educational way presents natural and cultural history of Croatia, the aquarium setting itself is remarkable. Namely, its home is an Austro-Hungarian fort Verudela, built in 1886. and registered as a protected cultural heritage. The fort is in a constant process of revitalization starting in 2002. More than 1500 m2 of aquarium space and 5000m2 of outside area is adapted to suit the needs of the aquarium and the visitors. Most of the rooms have been used to display various exhibits, only the central part - the cannon block - and the moat surrounding the fort, 100 meters long and 10 meters wide, remain unused. The central cannon block in fort Verudela, currently unoccupied, will be converted to display living world of the Adriatic and tropical habitats. For 2017 Aquarium Pula is planning to open three completely new tanks 50 m3 of water each. The ground level tank will be home for some larger Adriatic animals, such as a sunfish, eagle ray and a few shark species, while the tank on the first floor is reserved for tropical sharks.
