Pula

Pula Croatia is the largest city in Istria County and the eighth largest city in the country, situated at the southern tip of the Istria peninsula, with a population of 57,460 in 2011. It is known for its multitude of ancient Roman buildings, the most famous of which is the Pula Arena, one of the best preserved Roman amphitheaters, and its beautiful sea. The city has a long tradition of winemaking, fishing, shipbuilding, and tourism. It has also been Istria’s administrative centre since ancient Roman times.

The city is best known for its many surviving ancient Roman buildings, the most famous of which is its 1st-century amphitheatre, which is among the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the world and locally known as the Arena. This is one of the best-preserved amphitheaters and is still in use today during summer film festivals. During the World War II Italian fascist administration, there were attempts to dismantle the arena and move it to mainland Italy, which were quickly abandoned due to the costs involved.
Two other notable and well-preserved ancient Roman structures are the 1st-century AD triumphal arch, the Arch of the Sergii and the co-eval temple of Rome and Augustus, built in the 1st century AD built on the forum during the reign of the Roman emperor Augustus.

Pula - How to Get There

Pula Croatia Airport is located north-east of Pula, and serves both domestic and international destinations. Similarly to nearby Rijeka Airport, it is not a major international destination.
There are direct flights to Pula airport from London and Dublin during the whole year and several other large airports in Western Europe during the summer time. In 2015 European Coastal Airlines established a daily seaplane service from the downtown seaplane terminal at the city’s main waterfront.

A train service operates north from Pula through to Slovenia, however, the line remains disconnected from the rest of the Croatian Railways network.

From there, an excellent service to a wide range of local, domestic and international locations is available throughout the year. There is also a guaranteed direct line from Pula to Trieste or Venice, especially into spring/summer time.
Passenger ferries also operate from the port area to nearby islands, and also to Venice and Trieste in Italy from June till September.
