Pula Croatia

Tucked away in the southern tip of the Istrian peninsula, the city of Pula has an untainted natural scenery that makes it a postcard-perfect travel destination in Croatia. The sea-facing city is speckled with balmy beaches, lush vineyards and historic ruins.

Roman-inspired architecture dominates the skyline of this city, drawing many travellers towards its eventful ancient history. On your trip to Pula, you can explore the Pula Arena, a Roman amphitheatre resembling Rome’s Colosseum. Some of the other well-preserved monuments include the triumphal arch called Arch of the Sergii, the restored Pula Cathedral and the Temple of Augustus – dedicated to the first Roman emperor.

Waves of the Adriatic Sea sweep over the rocky and pebbly shores of this port city. When you visit Pula, set some time aside to enjoy sunbathing or cliff-jumping at Gortans Beach. A little further away from central Pula, are sun-drenched beaches in Stoja, where you can go for a refreshing swim at Cyclone Beach or snorkel in the clear waters of Valovine Beach.

The fertile land of Istria makes it a popular wine-growing region. You can set out on a wine tasting tour with visits to emerald green vineyards and family-run wineries, such as Vina Benazić and Medea Winery.
