Day Trip to Pula

by ramblingrose

We will be visiting Croatia in a couple of weeks. We would like to drive to Pula for a one day visit. I have two questions. Where is the best place to park the car for the day? And, is it possible to find a local guide for the day?

Thank you for your assistance.

Parking is easy in Pula and i don't think you need a guide, perhaps do a little reading about the area.In one day you will easily see what it has to offer.

In July and August, parking is a problem in Pula but in April or May, that should be much easier. There are several pay parking lots. I am not sure that out of season you will have to pay. If you want to park free, it is possible but you will have to walk . For example on the heigths over the arena, you will find free spots where you can park.
You do not need a guide. Pula is not that big.

When you drive into Pula it can appear a bit overwhelming. Pula is much larger and more industrialised than anywhere else in Istria. We followed signs for the colloseum and parked up close by on a visit a few years back. Able to walk everywhere else from there.

Travel Tips for Pula

Arena

by montezaro

Well known and one of the best preserved Roman amphitheatres in whole the world, it is a real emblem of my hometown of Pula. According to the documents it was built at the beginning of the 1th century in the time of emperor Claudius, and served mostly for the cruel gladiators games. It is the fifth biggest amphitheatres in whole the world.

Sergius Triumphal Arch

by codrutz


This corinthian style portal was built in the 1st century b.c. (probably arround 30-27 b.c.)and is better known as The Golden Gate.

In fact the Golden Gate (Porta Aurea) was the actual gate that provided entrance trough the city walls. It is supposed that, from the 12 city gates that existed, Porta Aurea was the most beautiful, with its golden parts.

The Arch had no gate function, but a honorary one for the roman Sergius Family. It has also to do with the battle of Actium.

In the picture you can see the exterior view, as you enter the Old Town

Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas

by JLBG

We passed by this church while we had parked on the heights of Pula, right over the arena. I felt that it looked nice but now, I am unable to find its name ! Shame on me !

Thanks to Boris VT Croisbeauty that identified it for me and gave me the following comment (I hope I am dropping it on the right picture !)
The Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas - formerly the church of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary, originated in the 6th century on the remains of a Roman building (probably a temple). The church was given a new front in the Romanesque style around 1200. In the17th century Romanesque portal was replaced with a square door and the Baroque windows were added. During Venetian rule the church was in 1538 given over to the Greek orthodox population that had moved to Pula from Cyprus and Nauplion. Now it is the property of the Serbian Orthodox Church.

The Archaeological Museum

by croisbeauty

The Museum was established in 1925, in the building of the former German grammar school.
The museum holds prehistoric exibition with exibits from Palaeolithic to the Bronze, monuments of the Roman material culture, and Olive and Vine growing in Istria in antiquity.
