Whether on a short break or a longer holiday, you won't want to leave Pula. Its three-millennia-old history can be seen at every corner, from the impressive Arena, over the Forum, Kastel fortress, to the Triumphal Arch of the Sergi, Gate of Hercules, and the Twin Gates, as well as many other landmarks from the Roman period, Austro-Hungary and modern times.
That is the place with one of the most beautiful coastlines in the Adriatic. Discover the vast range of beaches, from family-friendly to those secluded and hidden by untouched greenery. A great tourist asset is undoubtedly 190 kilometres of indented coastline, crystal-clear sea, and beaches to suit everyone's needs.
The sea is a source of inspiration for gastronomy in Pula as well. Seafood specialities, like frogfish, sea bass, and delicious stewed savoury buzara with Kvarner scampi, are just some of the offered delicacies. You should also try clams in Pula because they're delicious due to how clean the sea is. Oysters are exquisite, too—the only thing they need is a few drops of lemon.
Istria has been famous for its wines since ancient times. Today, it is the leading Croatian region producing top-quality wines. You can find anything from red to white wine, Borgonja, Hrvatica, and other fine varieties known worldwide like Chardonnay, Grey and White Pinot, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. However, the most famous Istrian wines are Malvasia and Teran.
