Pula K&K walking Tour - austrian epoque in Pula

In 1813, Pula and Istria were restored to the Austrian Empire (later the Austro-Hungarian Empire), and became part of the Austrian Littoral crown land. During this period Pula regained prosperity. From 1856 Pula's large natural harbour became Austria's main naval base and a major shipbuilding centre. The city transformed from a small city with a fading antique splendour into an industrial town. The island of Brijuni to the north of Pula became the summer vacation resort of Austria's Habsburg royal family. In World War I, the port was the main base for Austro-Hungarian dreadnoughts and other naval forces of the Empire. This tour shows the remains of those glorious times, it is sightseeing of "Austrian" Pula. Also possible as 4h tour, and whole day tour - with lunch and harbor tour by boat (place where Viribus Unitis sunk, shipyard Uljanik, Admiralat, Marine headquarters and hotel Riviera).
