#2 of 11 in Historic Sites in Pula
Religious Site Tourist Spot
See the ancient Temple Of Augustus, dedicated to Caesar himself some two millennia ago. Initially utilized for pagan rituals, through time the site evolved into a church, granary, and museum, but was nearly destroyed during World War II. See the well-preserved remnants of this temple at the former Roman forum. Observe its architectural style, which includes Corinthian columns and a richly decorated frieze, typical of the era. Step inside the temple to view its collection of ancient stone and bronze sculptures.

  • A beautiful sight in the middle of the town square. It is beautiful at night, in the busy square but also quite special early in the morning when the square is empty and you have the place to yourself...  more »
  • It is great to see but tells a little story and there is a nice square with cafes where you can sit and look at the site.

  • Beautiful and charming evening. .. shame that a band of street performers in front of us and the entrance was compromised. Don't miss it if you go to Pula

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.
