The Heart of Istria

Whether you are looking to enjoy a classic beach holiday, some action or culture: Pula has something to suit all tastes. This small Croatian town on the southern tip of the Istrian peninsula captivates with extraordinary diversity. It is also an ideal start and end point for adventure holidays.

As recently as 150 years ago, most of Pula’s inhabitants were Italian. Though that is no longer the case today, the town is officially bilingual and also known by its Italian name “Pola”. Croatia’s balanced weather makes it easy to create and enjoy a perfect blend of physical activity and relaxation.

Bathing and seal watching on Pula’s beaches

There are some lovely bathing coves around Pula, and the sand beach of Medulin is just ten kilometres away. If you ever get tired of sun bathing, there’s jet skiing, diving and windsurfing to take on. The beaches in the Vendela neighbourhood boast a very special attraction: you might just spot some Mediterranean monk seals there.

Illuminated shipyard cranes

Pula’s landmark is its amphitheatre. Other places of interest are the Temple of Augustus and the Arch of the Sergii located in the centre of the Old Town and –today- gateway to Pula’s popular shopping area. A particular highlight is offered by the art project “Light Giants“ in the Uljanik shipyard featuring illuminated cranes that dazzle in different colours by night.

For train and cycling enthusiasts

The Brijuni national park encompasses fourteen islands and is located in the vicinity of Pula. Istria also has plenty to excite the adventurous. The Pula-Divaca railway line connects to the historic Southern Railway that runs between Vienna and Trieste. Pula is also the end point of the “Euro Vela 9“ bicycle route which starts in Gdansk on the Baltic Sea and passes through Poland, the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia and Croatia. Needless to say, anyone who completes that route deserves a generous glass of Slivovitz, Croatia’s national drink!
