Riviera Pula

Looking for where antiquity and modernity mix, where the Imperial and Royal Monarchy ran its own naval base, where wild coves are combined with beautiful beaches? The Pula Riviera surprises and spoils its guests form all over the world with just that. Like maintaining your own private boat, the craft to preserve its cultural and history has profoundly shaped the country, people and its cuisine. The southern region of Istria has preserved its Roman and Venetian heritage particularly well. The best example of this is the city of Pula, where in the stone today you can witnesses the Roman and Venetian eras that tell of grandiose festivals and powerful rulers; wealthy merchants and deadly feuds. For example, in the structure of the powerful (and well preserved) Roman amphitheater, which is rightly regarded as the landmark of the port city. Here the theater is used, among others for the annual Pula International Film Festival in July. While taking a walk through the charming narrow streets and alleys of the city do not only look to the carefully restored buildings from the Middle Ages and Renaissance but also look to where your feet are walking- the ground, where here old Rome is even still present in the form of ancient cobbled streets.

For cyclists, the ancient paving stones are a nightmare - the beautiful, pine-lined bike trails of the Riviera are where cyclists have opportunities for extraordinary enjoyment. Did you know that the cycling route Euro Velo 9 ends in Pula? The cycle track comes on its way from Gdansk on the Baltic coast to Pula through Poland, the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia and Croatia.

This city at the southern tip of Istria is better known, however, for its proximity to the Brijuni National Park.Where Tito once welcomed the VIPs from politics, the economy and society- who he let live like kings- is where tourists today explore the Safari Park, the Tito Museum and the beautiful gardens and villas of the main island. Especially nature lovers
