Pula, like the rest of Istria, is known for its mild climate, tranquil sea, and its nature. The town has a long tradition of viniculture, fishing, ship building, and tourism. Many medieval and Renaissance buildings proudly line the small alleys in the old city centre. The alleys are still paved with centuries old Roman cobblestones. But what the town is most well known for is its many remaining Roman buildings of which the amphitheatre, dating from the first century, is the most important. This is one of the world’s best preserved ancient amphitheatres. Even today it is still used for summer film festivals.

  • The amphitheatre: the fifth largest preserved Roman arena
  • The Temple of Augustus: built in the first century by Emperor Augustus
