On the southern tip of Croatia’s Istrian peninsula, Pula is a city blessed by nature. Bright sunshine and crystal-clear waters make Pula a highly desirable vacation destination. And the wealth of culture and history that can be enjoyed here is second to none. Its Roman heritage enhances Pula's natural beauty. The city is home to some of the best-preserved and most spectacular Roman ruins anywhere in the world. Romans, Ostrogoths, and Venetians have all left their mark on this enchanting place over the course of centuries. Until 1947, the Istrian peninsula was part of Italy, so you can be sure that the food in Pula is exceptional. The city’s coastal location provides Pula’s kitchens with fresh seafood, and the forests beyond the city are a source of world-famous truffles. The Istrian climate is also ideal for wine production, and wines from this region are beginning to make waves around the world for their quality. The coastal location does more than simply enhance Pula’s beauty, though. It also allows for a wealth of tourist activities. Swimming, diving, snorkeling, kayaking - the proximity of water allows for near limitless things to do. The rocky coastline keeps the water as clear as glass, and also allows ample opportunities for cliff jumping. Pula has so much to recommend it as a holiday destination that if you haven’t been there yet, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Like many millions of other happy tourists, you’ll be glad that you did.
