Geocache Description:

Small geocache is placed in one of the buildings of Hidrobaza (Seaplane base) in Puntižela, Štinjan.



Hidroavioni se u Puli pojavljuju tijekom Prvog svjetskog rata, te se upotrebljavaju uglavnom u vojne svrhe. U periodu od 1912. do 1915. godine Austro-Ugarska je izgradila potrebnu infrastrukturu, najprije hidrobazu na otoku Sv. Katarina, a kasnije i na otočiću Kozada te na Puntiželi.

Pretpostavljeno vrijeme gradnje hidrobaze na Puntiželi je između 1913. i 1915. godine. Građevine hidrobaze temeljito su preuređene za vrijeme Italije od 1923. do 1930. godine. Njihovo je uništavanje započelo krajem Drugog svjetskog rata, kada je u jednom od bombardiranja Pule i okolice srušena hidrobaza.

Građevine su podvrgnute postepenoj devastaciji sve do današnjih dana, te su trenutno u ruševnom stanju. Ostatke nekadašnje Hidrobaze čine četiri ruševna objekta, ruševna operativna obala, tračnice i podovi hangara (plato).


Seaplane base

Seaplane base in Puntižela, Štinjan, near Pula is built by Austro-Hungary between 1913 and 1915. Buildings of Seaplane base are thoroughly reconstructed during Italian reign between 1923 and 1930. During WW2 it was destroyed by allied bombing of Pula and surroundings.

Current remainings include four partially destroyed objects, operational coastline, tracks and hangar floor.
