Pula is the largest town in Istria, located at the southernmost point of the peninsula, does not reveal its cultural wealth at first glance, nor does it hint at the beauty of its immediate surroundings. The reasons lie in its location in a low-lying area, the size of the town and the buildings at its periphery. However, when in the center of the town, we are immediately impressed by the monumentality and level of preservation of the amphitheater which bears witness to the significance of Pula and Istria going back to Ancient times. This is the sixth largest Roman amphitheater in the world, and also one of the best preserved.
The amphitheater was built during the rule of Emperor Vespasian in the 1st century BC and has remained virtually unchanged for 2000 years. Once, it was used as an arena to stage cruel and merciless gladiator fights that were watched by up to 20,000 spectators, while today it is a tourist attraction and a favoured stage for various types of events, mostly concerts, from classical music and ballet to rock, which take well to the unique surroundings and acoustics. However, the best known among all such events is the national, and since recently international Film Festival which takes place every year in July.
In addition to its amphitheater, Pula has a range of other monuments dating from Roman times, like the Triumphal Arch of the Sergii in the very heart of the town. The town is also home to the Archaeological Museum of Istria, one of the most important museums in Croatia with regard to its holdings. The museum houses the largest number of archaeological findings in Istria, covering the period from prehistory to the Middle Ages. Many precious monuments, particularly from more recent times, can be seen in the Historical Museum of Istria, as well as in a number of small galleries. Paintings and graphics of interest can be seen in the imposing building housing the City Government, particularly from the times of the Habsburgs, i.e. the Austro-Hungarian Empire, when Pula was one of the largest naval/military bases in the world.
The surroundings of Pula also abound in valuable cultural and historical monuments, in particular the Brijuni National Park, the crown jewel of Istria’s natural heritage. Contained within it are particularly valuable monuments dating from Antiquity, such as Roman villas, and the fortification complexes dating from the Habsburg period, best known among them being the fortification on the island of Mali Brijun which today occasionally acts as a stage for theater productions. Located near Pula is the ancient Illyrian town of Nezactium, dating back to pre-Roman times, and rising on the most far flung, southernmost point of the Istrian peninsula, near Cape Kamenjak, is the imposing Porer lighthouse.
