Pula was founded as early as the 10th century BC and was valued for its strategic location. It has been occupied, destroyed and rebuilt numerous times, and once stood at the heart of the Roman Empire. Now it's your turn to discover it.
You will see the proof of this long history all around you: an amazingly well-preserved Roman amphitheatre, Temple of Augustus, Arco dei Sergi, Gate of Hercules and a glut of more remarkable buildings, monuments and towers. Each evokes and arouses your senses and imagination, even if you are not a history and architecture buff.
Discover and savour Italy’s influence in Pula’s gastronomic offerings. Try Tivoli, Villa Margerita or Pompei — they are all recommended Italian restaurants serving up mouth-watering traditional cuisine. Farabuto, meanwhile, is famous for its fresh seafood and soups. For traditional Croatian dishes, try Vodnjanka-Trattoria.
