Visitors from all over the world come to Pula to marvel at the beauty of this 3000-year-old Istrian city. Notable for its exceptional cultural attractions including the Pula Arena, Gate of Hercules, Temple of Augustus and more, Pula was once the major naval port of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. As a result, the city and its surroundings were home to 26 magnificent forts or fortifications, eight artillery batteries, about 60 batteries, trenches, underground tunnels and many other points of interest. Its clean sea and beautiful parks are also a joy to experience and many of the beaches in Pula and nearby towns are perfect for watersports such as windsurfing, kayaking and snorkelling.
This is the largest monument dating from the first century AD and was originally designed for gladiatorial combat. Nowadays it is a world-famous concert and festival venue.
Take a boat trip to Brijuni National Park, an archipelago of 14 islands that were once home to General Tito. Here, you can visit the museum, safari park and zoo, as well as take in the beauty of the island's flora and fauna.
