Austro-Hungarian naval cemetery in Pula

Austro-Hungarian naval cemetery in Pula, Croatia

On a research tour about my father’s life I also visited the cemetery of the Austro-Hungarian navy in Pula. The natural harbour of this city served as Austria’s main naval base until 1918.

Among others I came across the graves of Baron von Trapp’s parents. The life of Baron von Trapp and his family became famous worldwide by the US movie ‘Sound of Music’.
