Pula is the largest town on the Istrian peninsula and has a rich history which dates back 3000 years, indeed it is most famous for it’s stunning Roman ampitheatre which is still used today for concerts and events. Other Roman sights such as the Temple of Augustus are to be found too, well preserved and impressive, as is the first century Arch of Sergius which is the gate at the edge of the original Roman town. There are a good few other Roman relics and remains to stumble across so worth reading up about before a visit to this area so you know what to look out for.
Pula also has lovely beaches up and down its coastline to laze away the summer days. And in the evenings, Pula has many restaurants to tempt you!
