    Default Pula exploration/Katarina military base/Nov. 2012

    After exploring the Haludovo hotel on Krk, we traveled to the city Pula to explore as much as we can. Pula is a large city located in Istra, Croatia by the sea. It was a rainy day so the mood for exploration was even better. We were suprised by the size of the military complex. There are a LOT of buildings and fortifications and they are easily accessible.

    We left the car, hopped a fence and started to walk through a thick forest, relying on our GPS and cellphone navigation. After a few landslides and encounters with cows we stumbled upon a really scary scene. A bunch of military guys smoking and chilling by a military jeep. We were stunned because it was supposed to be abandoned and now we were in the center of an "active" military base... The penalties and legal issues were the first thing that came through our mind as we dropped flat on the ground trying to hide from them. Luckily, one of our members is an Airsofter and he realised that the patch and marks on the guys were from an Airsoft club he knew.

    We got a lot of quality info from them and they even knew about our blog so it was the opposite of our expectations a few minutes earlier...

    Pula is an awesome city, and it has a lot of military history, definitively a highly recommended place to explore.

    Definitely abandoned by the looks of it but I wouldn’t like to bump into actual military on a live base. The last shot looks like a prison cell?

    No, I think they were some sort of barracks. The base is really really old, before the 1900's I think but I could be wrong :/
