The port of Pula was the main base of the Austro-Hungarian Navy until 1918. An impressive trace to this time forms the K.u.k. Naval Cemetery of Pula. The place in today’s Stoja district dates back to 1862. [German]
While walking along the tombs at the Austro-Hungarian naval cemetery in Pula, I came across the graves of Hedwig and August Trapp. They were der parents of Baron von Trapp. Fans of “Sound of Music” may know this name. Baron von Trapp was the father of the singing Trapp family. Christopher Plummer played him in the movie.
