Interesting town & great beaches


Pula is the capital of the Istria region and is probably best known for the jaw droppingly impressive first century Roman amphitheatre, the sixth largest in the world and, built from local stone.

Intact and lovingly maintained, the amphitheatre is home to the Croatian Film Festival and concerts featuring world class artistes  who usually perform in July and August. Headliners have included Leonard Cohen, Joe Cocker, Sir Elton John and Jose Carreras, Bob Dylan is in concert this summer.

The oldest part of the city also contains Roman walls, the Triumphal Arch of Sergius, the ancient Forum and the Temple of Augustus. 

With a population of around 50,000 Pula is a real working town with some good nightlife and a shipyard still turning out freighters and cruise ships.

The Verudela area, where our hotels are located, has Pula’s best beaches, sports facilities and coastal walking hotels.
