must visit to get a taste of roman architecture. Not as grand as i had expected it to be but in a better condition than the Rome Colosseum. The museum in the basement is pretty amazing.

Got the bus to Pula, you dont need to enter as you can get photos from the outside. Suppose if you see one theatre you have seen them all.

It's a must visit if in Pula, it's similar to the one in Rome but smaller. The arena is pretty well maintained. The entrance fee is around 40 kunas.

Amphitheater in Pula is best attraction in this city. It is more than 2000 years old. It is very well preserved as for such building.
