Do you want to earn unusual experience of sightseeing besides a classic walk among cultural monuments?
Near the Double Gates you will find the entrance to one of the must-see visitor attractions, Zerostrasse, a whole new world of underground tunnel network which runs beneath the whole old city of Pula. Almost every hill has been excavated for a tunnel during the Austro-Hungarian period to provide shelters for citizens during World War I. Italian authorities later continued to use and upgrade existed tunnel network. Nowadays, tunnels are converted into the unique gallery and are a favorite attraction for both locals and tourists who rarely have the opportunity to walk the underground corridors. During the summer months, in addition to the permanent exhibition of the military history of Pula in the heart of the tunnel, it is possible to see various thematic exhibitions. Besides, the location is popular for many cultural events as well as concerts and festivals that enrich Pula’s summer nightlife.
It is important to know that available period for visiting Zerostrasse is from June to September during any day of the week. When you want to escape from the summer heat, you can find shelter in the tunnel since during summer months the temperature in the hallways does not exceed 20°C.
