Pula’s fortification system
From the middle of the 19th century onwards, Pula was used as the main Austrian naval port. Within the grid of the city of Pula there are 33 surviving forts and a further 150 assorted defensive structures that once belonged to the defense system that formed the main naval base of the Austro-Hungarian fleet. Due to the size, layout and geography of the area, alongside the exceptional artistic quality of the architecture, the fortification system was ranked one of the largest and most important in Europe.
We will visit the fort Casoni Vecchi, former military area of Monumenti-Katarina, and the fortress Punta Cristo, which hosts various cultural events. In the afternoon we will bathe in beautiful Adriatic sea.
