A very interesting day awaits us on Saturday, which we start with a trip to Pula, where we will visit the Pula Aquarium! (https://aquarium.hr/hr) Director Milena Mičić will welcome us at the Aquarium, and will give us a short presentation about the institution, but also share what kind of project challenges and experiences they encounter through the work of the Aquarium. In addition to the presentation, an hour-long tour of the aquarium awaits us, after which it will be possible to tour the aquarium independently.

After Pula we go to the village of Bričanci in Svetvinčent for lunch at OPG Ondina (https://www.facebook.com/opg.ondina/about). After lunch we will visit the wine cellar of the Ferenac family in the village of Ferenci in Vižinada (http://www.giulio-ferenac-wines.com/index.html), and in the late afternoon we will be hosted by the Višnjan Education Center at the Tičan location (https: //astro.hr/) where the famous telescope is located, which monitors the small bodies of the solar system. In the newly built dome, we will have the opportunity to listen to an interesting lecture by Korado Korlević and get to know the team that runs the Višnjan Education Center and their current project challenges. After the official program, we will have dinner in the observatory, socializing and networking and a tour of the Educational Center complex. When night falls, if the weather conditions are favorable, we will have the opportunity to observe nearby celestial bodies using a telescope.
