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.
On the 28th (Sat), don't miss a visit to Main Street, stop by Ribica Atelier, then enjoy breathtaking views from Saint Euphemia Cathedral, then get to know the fascinating history of STARI GRAD, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple Of Augustus. On your second day here, kick back and relax at Njive Beach, then look for gifts at Wine And Souvenir Shop "Terraneo", and then explore the ancient world of Pula Arena.

For where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, read Pula trip planner.
