The town of Pula on the Istrian peninsula has a long tradition of winemaking, fishing and tourism.

Pula is home to the world-famous Roman amphitheater Arena, built in the 1st century, the triumphal arch of the Sergius family, the Temple of Augustus, the archaeological museum and many other historical sights. The famous Pula Arena is less than a 10-minute walk from the Pula railway station. It is interesting to visit Tito Park near the arena. The Istrian olive oil museum is also worth a visit, and we could go on and on.

If you will be in Pula for a long time, a visit to the Brioni National Park is an interesting addition to your vacation. The park was a closed area for a long time, and that is why it stimulates the imagination even more and invites you to visit. A special train takes you around the park to see the remains of Roman culture, an ancient Christian basilica, a local museum, a zoo… You will see, according to testimonies, the oldest olive tree, which despite being stuck with cement – it was struck by lightning – still bears fruit. You can also visit the Tito Museum.

Pula is also an excellent starting point for visiting numerous swimming pools and beaches in the nearby and somewhat distant surroundings of the city.

ISTRIA invites you

Why a trip to Istria? Because it is so interesting, attractive, diverse and simply close!

Because it is close and offers the visitor, hiker or tourist many beautiful, interesting and unforgettable things. You can take a break in Pula or travel somewhere else along the coast, but you can also stop at intermediate stations in Istria (Pazin, Buzet…).In the Buzet area there are organized hiking and cycling trails, while the Roča area is increasingly interesting for practicing with paragliders and free climbing in the Istrian rocks.Or you can simply decide on a trip to the smallest town in the world, Huma, which is also beckoned by the many events traditionally organized in Istria all year round.

More information about Istria’s offer is available on the Istra and Osrednja Istra websites.
