Test of courage - chapter 2
....The task was made up of jumping into the deep canyon and for the first atempt I could do it by jumping on the feet. The next atempt, later on or after few days, I had to do by jumping on the head. I was fourtheen when I've fulfilled thet task. See on this picture how it looks from above.
When I am back here, after so many years, I think it was very crazy task, don't try it when in Pula.

BTW, you must know that if you get a ticket, you can pay it in any bank or post-office.

High security, the entrance !
The main entrance of this mysterious building is at the end of Trg Portarata. Seen from Trg Portarata, it is even more impressive and looks wealthy. Wealthy !? Of course, it is a bank ! I bet your money will be kept under a high level of security behind all these grids !

Pula is a mixed bag with a rather drab modern looking city. However, it does have ancient Roman ruins made before BC, which are considered the countries true treasures.
