Pula is a large town on the southwestern side of Istria. Its city center is not as historically important as many other towns around Istria, but some sights are well worth exploring. There is a huge and beautiful Roman Amphitheatre or Roman Coliseum, nicknamed the Arena, where plays and concerts are often held. Other attractions are the Triumphal Arch of Sergius (Golden Gate), the temple of Augustus, the Gate of Hercules and the remains of an old 14th century castle. There are also city walls, twin gates, churches, cathedrals and monasteries.
For natural beauty, excellent dining and evening entertainment, you should go to the Verudela Peninsula in the south with the beautiful island Fraškeric and attractive villages Medulin and Premantura. To the north of Pula, separated by the Fažana Channel, are the Brijuni Islands or Brionian Islands well known for its green oasis and safari park with inhabitants as zebras, elephants and many kinds of deer. Only Veli Brijun, the largest of the twelve islands, is regularly visited on tours. Its stunning underwater world holds turtles, dolphins, sea bass, groupers, sponges and many crustaceans living off this diverse and colorful seabed. Pula has an idyllic coastline and all the ingredients for an excellent Mediterranean holiday.
