Fort Punta Christo was built at the end of the 19th century by the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy to defend City of Pula, their main naval port. Situated on a small peninsula at 45 meters above sea level, Fort Punta Christo offers a breathtaking view of the entrance to the Bay of Pula, its breakwater, as well to National Park Islands Brijuni on the other side. The fortress is surrounded by a deep ditch and there are three entrances leading to the fort. Inside the fort are three courtyards through which you can enter the underground areas of this magnificent structure. The fortress has as many as 270 spaces, covering an area of over 10,000 m2.

Pula, the city with a three-thousand-year-old history, is world famous for its valuable cultural and historic monuments. Some of these renowned sights are the Arena, sixth largest in the world or Twin Gates, the Temple of Augustus, the well-preserved Roman Forum or the Communal Palace. However, not as much information is known about the impressive heritage of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy dating from the 19th and beginning of the 20th century that include 26 magnificent forts or fortifications, mostly abandoned, and that are undoubtedly a real cultural and historic treasure. According to legend all forts were interconnected by a network of underground and underwater tunnels.
