Pula - Small, Beautiful and Sheltering
Pula stands in the southernmost part of the Istria Peninsula, a popular destination for yacht charters. The city has been the administrative center of the Istria region since Ancient Roman times. Located in a secluded place in a wide bay, Pula is protected by the seven hills surrounding it. Thus it’s a perfect shelter even against the strongest storms and its smooth sea is a pleasure for tourists and yacht charter clients alike. Also worth attention for its Roman remains, Pula was taken over from Italy after World War II. Naturally, you feel something Italian throughout the city. Pula’s Arena was once the venue for bloody gladiator fights, and is the world’s sixth biggest Roman amphitheater that survived to day. Close to town is the Vinkuran village forest, a refreshing place by the sea, if you have some time to visit before renting a boat in Pula.
