Aquarium Pula-Pola is located in the Austro-Hungarian fortress Verudela, which was built in 1886 on the peninsula 3 km from the centre of the city of Pula. Transforming the fortress into the aquarium has been in progress since 2002. The installation has been set in about 60 tanks on the ground floor, the moat, and the first floor of the fortress. In an area of approx.
2000 m2 visitors can get acquainted with inhabitants of Northern and Southern Adriatic Sea, tropical marine and freshwater fish and with representatives of European rivers and lakes. From the roof of the fort, a unique view of the entire city of Pula-Pola and Istria stretches to the distant horizon, while in the moat you can enjoy refreshments on our summer terrace.
The Butterfly Garden is in the ecological centre of Eia, and is surrounded by the magic fairy wood, which includes an oak-tree hundreds of years old, known as Nono. Eia is in an area of untouched nature between Bale-Valle
and Krmede, and has numerous ecological projects and unusual buildings such as a house made of straw, an earthen kitchen and an Indian sauna, as well as the very special Butterfly Garden.
Aquacolors Water Park in Poreč is a new addition to the Istrian peninsula's list of attractions. A place where both the young and old can safely enjoy adrenaline-rush activities, the water park is located two km south of Poreč, in the direction of Funtana and Vrsar, in the vicinity of Zelena Laguna (Green Lagoon). One of Europe's most modern water parks will open its doors to the public on 16 May and remain open until the end of September. Adrenaline-rush seekers will be thrilled to hear that Aquacolors Poreč offers as many as 17 different attractions, 13 of which are slides and hydrocoasters, divided into four different categories: adrenaline, fun, relaxation, and kids. Each type of attraction has its own special light effects.
Twenty slides and an aquatic area of 4,100 m2 spread out across an area totalling 81,000 m2 – these figures translate into tons of fun that await you at Istralandia Aquapark, a waterpark located between Brtonigla and Novigrad. The excellent geographical position of Istralandia Aquapark, near the exit off the Istrian Ypsilon motorway, makes it easy to reach from all parts of the Istrian peninsula.
Adrenaline attraction you will long remember starts on the Hotel Lovac Green Terrace and is divided in two parts. First line is 220 m long, with an average speed of 60 to 65 km/h, and in ten seconds you are already on the other side of the Pazin Cave, in the Writer's House yard, where you will be welcomed by members of the Zip Line team. From the same point second line starts, which is much longer (280 m) and slower, so you can enjoy the unusual view on a grandiose abyss and a medieval castle on its cliffs. We land on the lookout above the Grandma's house cave.
Dinopark Funtana-Fontane is the first amusement and theme park in Croatia where the life-size dinosaurs are the main topic. The remains of dinosaurs have been found in Istria, and thus became part of the story of our peninsula. Take a journey into the distant past and experience both visually and acoustically these awesome creatures that ruled the earth for millions of years. Be prepared to meet the scariest creatures of that era.
