Pula

3.6
Ruins · Sacred & Religious Sites · Architectural Buildings
It's the mild climate and calm seas of Pula that draw visitors to the southernmost point of the Istrian peninsula, but the city's ample Roman architecture is a key reason they stay. Situated along the Adriatic Sea below rolling hills, the city is surrounded by natural beauty. However, its most famous attribute may well be its impeccably preserved Roman amphitheater. This archeological site hosts historical tours, summer concerts, and other cultural events, and dominates the cityscape. Though tourism has somewhat changed the atmosphere of Pula, old cafes and restaurants maintain an air of authenticity, and it's just a short bus ride away from quiet beaches. With the Inspirock international travel planner, Pula and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.

Where to stay in Pula

Although Pula offers a limited choice of mid-range hotels in and around the old town, you can still stay affordably near this part of the city by renting a room from one of the local families. Check the city's main tourist office for a list of registered owners, or look for window signs advertising rooms for rent. The most popular resort hotels remain in the well-developed areas near the sea, easily reachable from the city center by car or public bus.
