About Pula, Croatia

Pula is the largest city in Istria. It is located in the south of the Istrian peninsula in a deeply protected bay, within which is located the pulp shipyard, the oldest industrial plant of the city opened by the Emperor Francis Joseph in 1856, his wife Empress Elizabeth known as Sissi (the image of Emperor Josip and Sisi) This is the only European shipyard on an island that once was covered with olive trees and where the shipyard was named after the railway line. Today, pulp scissors are dominated by high cranes, and the shipbuilding tradition slowly goes into oblivion ... (picture of shipyard

When you arrive in Pula, the largest city in Istria, you will first notice the great Roman Colosseum (a picture of the arena) where gladiatorial battles were once held.

Pula with its 3,000 year anniversary is the place where the past, the present and the future are met. Did you know that in the place where you are right now (a painting of Giardi's in Pula) in the Middle Ages there was a city cemetery mentioned in the VI singing of Dante's Hell (a picture of Dante's Hell). Passing through the Sergijeva Slavica known as the Golden Gate (golden gate) you enter the old town's shopping and dining district where you can buy a variety of souvenirs, refreshed with excellent ice cream and drinks (picture of the Prvomajska Street) and the peak of your walk will be at the main Pula town square Forum (the picture of the Fores) with the town hall and the Augusta temple as the main architectural adutime of the square.

Pula and its oak are known as the best olive oil production in the world (olive and olive oil bottles) Many local olive oil producers offer their quality products (list them). If you continue your walk from the bustle of the Forum through the Kandler's street that abounds in the Venetian medieval architectural tradition (a picture of the candlestick street with baroque balconies) you will find the only museum of olive oil in the world (museum image) that gives you the opportunity to see how olive oil (see the olive oil museum's details page). Pula is a town situated on 7 hills. On one of them, just above the museum of olive oil, there was a pulp castle (a picture of a castle) built during the time of the Venice city administration.

We recommend that you take a walk in the city's green market, located under centuries-old chestnut trees (a picture of the Pula market). Within the Pula town market there is the indoor part of the market, a two-storey building constructed during the Autum Management of Pul, which was thoroughly reconstructed in 1997, from when it got its present appearance and function (picture of the market building). There are numerous booths and catering facilities (a picture of the inner part of the market), and there is also a fish market with a rich offer of fish from our sea. (fishery picture).

From a walk in the city, the man is hungry. Pula offers a number of places to refresh (list and possibly paint) that are price-adjusted to each pocket. Our recommendation is to visit the Boca Gate Restaurant in the Dolinka Dolac area, with the owner who has been titled for a few seasons with the title of a Croatian master (pictures, possibly paint me and specify specialties of the house). If you want your lunch to spend on a beautiful terrace overlooking the Brijuni the islands recommend to visit the restaurant Režanka which operates within the campsite Brioni at Puntiželi (pictures, possibly paint me and mention the specialties of the house)
