Pula is the largest city in Istria country, conveniently situated in the southern peninsula for those who like their summer weather a little cooler. With smooth seas and world-class beaches, Pula is the perfect place to learn a new water sport, try delicious freshly-caught seafood and unwind away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Taking old traditions and subverting them in a typically Croatian way, one of the city's highlights is definitely Rojc. A converted army barracks, it now houses a multimedia art and music centre with a constant rotation of concerts, exhibitions and events. It may not look like much from the outside, but once indoors, creative inspiration isn't far away.
As the polar opposite, Pula's 1st -century amphitheatre is now nothing more than a shell, but still strikes an impressive authority against the skyline. Check out the weekly Spectacvla Antiqva during the summer for recreations of gladiator fights and roman dressmaking workshops, or stake out your seat at the Pula film festival, taking place every July.
In terms of eating, Pula favours a flavourful-yet-healthy diet. Embrace the Mediterranean cuisine and relaxed pace of life by visiting for yourself: Pula can be accessed in no time at all with a short flight from Leeds Bradford® Airport.
