Nestled on the southern tip of the peninsula lies Pula, the largest city in Istria which offers an enticing blend of Croatia’s modern buzz with the atmosphere of ancient Rome.
Uncover the wealth of Roman architecture throughout the city of Pula, with the well-preserved 1st century Roman Amphitheatre as the star attraction. Dominating the bustling streets of this lively Istrian city, the limestone-built amphitheatre, which originally hosted gladiatorial contests, is the ultimate venue for summer concerts and festivals and it can hold up to 20,000 spectators.
Pula offers a contrasting modern side too, with fantastic shopping opportunities, lively bars and an attractive marina.
The picturesque, horseshoe-shaped Pula Bay is the ideal spot to unwind by the Adriatic Sea, with pretty pebble stones backed by a rugged terrain. If you’re feeling adventurous, why not try snorkelling or diving? There are plenty of family holiday activities to try in Pula, and the city has great transport links to rest of Istria’s radiant region, including the breath-taking Brijuni Islands which can be accessed via a short boat trip from nearby Fažana.
