The Secession Horthy Villa

The Villa of the Austro-Hungarian Admiral Miklós Horthy has German Gothic and Renaissance features as well as the Alpine-folk elements, which makes it one of the most interesting structures in Pula.


The Horthy Villa on Veruda was erected on the area reserved for the naval elite, including Miklos Horthy de Nagybanya, the youngest Austro-Hungarian Counter Admiral. His villa is one of the most interesting architectural buildings of modern architecture in Pula. The Miklos Horthy residence is a distinctive combination of styles introducing Pula to new architectural elements of the time. German Gothic and Renaissance as well as the Alpine-folk elements are visible primarily in the pointy roofs and a tall round tower with a cone-like roof. Wavy gables on the facades together with the wreath of suspended arches contribute to the overall impression.
