Best Beaches and Accomodation

by BertieB

Hi

I am travelling to Pula at the beginning of August by myself. Is it easy at this time to find reasonable private accommodation - not hostels, I snore to loud to be in a dorm.

Also, where are the best beaches to relax with decent restaurants nearby.

Not looking for serious night life - I'm a bit past that.

Travel Tips for Pula

The Indoor Market at Narodni trg

by Ekaterinburg

Before we reached the open-air market a beautiful green building caught my eye. It immediately reminded me of the indoor market in Bratislava so I decided to climb up the two flights of steps to check it out. It was indeed an an indoor market though there were cafes there also. I'm wondering if the same rules apply here as seem to apply to the food market in Rovinj. In Rovinj, there's a notice at the market stating that no meat or fish can be sold there and these can be bought in the shops round the edge of the square. There were some shops in this lovely airy building though not as many as I'd expected. The back wall has a huge colourful mural and there's an interesting sculpture of woman in the centre. None of the guideboks or web pages I've read on Pula mention this building and I would love to know the significance of the statue and the mural. The statue, I feel, coud be just a shopper but maybe it's a suitcase she's carrying in which case it could be something quite different. I wonder .........

I really enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor markets here.

Inside the Arena

by codrutz


The best known and most valuable ancient monument is to be sure the Arena, the majestic colloseum dating from the second century, the sixth largest in the world.

Being inside the Colloseum gives you a special feeling. You can feel the history.

City Gates and Triumphal Arches.

by Ekaterinburg

Before Pula's city walls were removed there were at least 9 gates through which you could enter. The most impressive of these gates is this one known as the Twin Gates which now stands splendidly alone in Ul Carrarina. The double-arched gate was the main entrance to the city and today it is the entrance to the Archeological Museum and the castle.

On Trg Portorata, a large open space at the end of Giardini stands the Triumphal Arch of the Sergei , erected in the end of the first century BC. This arch originaly leant against the city walls and now it also stands somewhat precariously alone. Through the arch you can see Ul Sergeijevaca which must originally have been on the imperial route as it leads straight to the forum.

James Joyce lived in Pula

by Ekaterinburg

While everybody associates James Joyce with Trieste, very few know that he lived and worked in Pula also. Admittedly this was not for long and came about by accident rather than design. When he first came to Italy the Berlitz School in Trieste had no vacancies and sent him to Pula instead. He was only here fom October 1904 to march 1905 and by all accounts had nothing even remotely complimentary to say about the place, but nonetheless Pula have done him proud. A wonderful bronze statue of him by the Croatian sculptor Mate Cvrljak is placed outside the Cafe Uliks. Here Joyce sits and forever gazes out over Portorata and the Arch of the Sergei. Just nearby is the plaque that marks the building he taught in. Thank you Pula for this mark of respect to a countryman of mine.

You might want to pick up some German.

by randm1

German is the most-spoken second language in Pula, since Germans are the most frequent tourists. If you're not feeling up to learning a slavic language, it wouldn't hurt to learn some phrases in German.
