The Punta Christo Fortress is an old abandoned Austro Hungarian fortress situated in Pula, Croatia. The fort was built at the end of the 19th century by the Austro Hungarians who were ruling over the city, it was built to increase the defences of the city and the naval port. The fortress has as many as 270 rooms, covering an area of over 10,000 m2. The magnificent structure provides scenic views over the entrance to the bay of Pula. Today, the abandoned fortress is looked after by a group of local enthusiasts who organise concerts and cultural events at the fortress in the summer months.
The fortress is situated in the Stinjan area of Pula. From Pula, you can catch a bus to the area or alternatively take the more expensive option of getting a taxi.
