When you start exploring Pula, you can't miss the most obvious sight: The Roman Arena (Amphitheatre).

It is one of the best preserved roman amphitheatres in the world and more than 2000 years old. It is stunning that a structure can "survive" so long and that we can still admire it today. It gives you a glimpse of how the life was back then.

But besides the stunning Amphitheatre there is more history to discover in Pula. In many parts of the city you can see ancient Roman buildings and artefacts. In the City Centre you can see this ancient arch for example - a great place for history lovers.

Nature and surroundings

Besides history Pula has great nature to offer: Clear, blue adriatic water, that definitely invites for a swim (bring some watershoes since it's mostly rocky shorelines)

I would also definitely recommend to go see one of the beautiful sunsets at the ocean. and if you're a cat lover you will probably find some cuties that want some cuddles. 😼

If you like to hike you can explore the surroundings of Pula. I found some lost places, churches and in the area there are several Forts that are worth a hike.

One thing that you see instantly when you go to the habour in Pula are the lighting giants. These are the giant cranes that are lit up at night

This was my little insight on how Pula is like. Of course you can eat fresh fish and drink local wine

Secret Tip: Go to the restaurants at the fishmarket ;)

Since there are some cheap flights from other european cities it is a great entry point for you next Croatia trip :)

That ancient architecture is just mind-boggling. I do hope I get to see it for myself some day!

Yes it's really great. In Croatia is a lot of ancient roman and medival architecture. It's like traveling back in time to see these structures. :)
