First historical mentions of Pula are more than 3000 years old. Ancient Rome left in this town at the tip of Istria many monuments, theatres, temples, thriumphal arche, mosaics… Among them roman amphitheater Arena is surely the most famous one, the reason why one come to visit Pula. In the summer it is a very animated city with a lot of cultural events. Pula Film Festival is worth noting due to its long tradition, intimate connection with the people from Pula and beautiful experience of watching films in Arena under stars. If you are lucky enough, you can even attend (for free!) big ship launching in Uljanik, Pula’s shipyard founded by Austro-Hungarian monarchy in 1856.
