    Cheaper to Brijuni Archipelago

    Brijuni Archipelago

    The tickets on the cruise by boat around the Brijuni Archipelago are cheaper when you start from Fazana. So if you want to save some money you would better take a boat (and a ticket too, of course) rather there than in Pula. Although offers are very similar (trip around, food and some drinks, 1-2 hour stay on beach at one of islands) and only the way ?to" the archipelago is a bit longer, the differences in prices can reach up to 50 per cent (e.g. 150 and 100 kuna). The most expensive, but without any doubts also the most impressive, will be the cruise which includes a visit on the main island.

    Pula is the currency of Botswana. The photo represents a 5 pula coin issued for the 1988 Seoul Olympics.

    Fun Alternatives: Haha, not really a tourist trap but a Vter private joke.

    Not all restaurants offer the fresh Seafood

    Arena

    Like in any other touristic places on earth there are reastaurants and "restaurants". If you do not care how much you will spend for lunch, I suggest you "Milan", Borghesia" "Fra-Kat", or "Valsabbion". If the price metter to you, take your own risk.

    Unique Suggestions: Let me teach you how to recognize the fresh fish:
    - open the eye of the fish (when the waiter showing you the offer of the day), if it looks gloomy the fish is not fresh
    - the other test is; remove the gill, it must be of light pink colour, if not the fish was freezed up.

    Brijuni island - is it worth it?

    by tobhamor Written Nov 4, 2004

    Avenue of Pines

    We made a day trip to Brijuni from Pula. Kind of wondered why we did because you have to go on an escorted tour so you have very little time to see the interesting things on the island. OK, so the Avenue of Pines and the 1700 year old olive tree aren't so spectacular, but there are some Roman ruins it would have been nice to explore for more than 10 minutes.

    Unique Suggestions: Sneak off from your tour group and hire a bicycle or just walk around. We didn't realise bike hire was possible until we were leaving.

    In most clubs and popular places, you will have to pay to use the toilet (sometimes up to 2.00 EUR )
    What can I say, take a leak before you leave the house. Also, exchange you money in the exchange office, not on the street. Don't buy drugs from locals at clubs. When visiting Brioni, take the bus to Fazana and the ferry to Brioni. Don't take the boat from Prorec or further up as you will pay 3X as much and won't see anything special.

    The Fortress or Kastel. Without wanting too upset anyone, not all that interesting or infomative. Only real plus are the great views over the city and harbour. Also a very steep climb up from the harbour- Mrs Bonio less than impressed!

    I havent found any real tourist trap. We only had a bit negative feeling while visiting 'Historical museum of Pula'. Things inside did not interested us too much :-(( But it has a good lookout tower.
