It's a great site and one worth seeing as reflected in many other recent reviews. Please be certain to venture to the underground exhibit below the stadium. It's interesting, informative, and one of the better looks at how things might have been in days when gladiators, animals, wine makers, and a diverse host of others roamed the warren below the...

It's just unique between all Roman amphitheatres: on shores of the sea, lying on a hill slope. Ok, it's in my hometown as well. A stage for one of the oldest european film festivals and many concerts.

Amazing to sit in the arena. They had been filming an advert but when we went they were in the process of removing parts of the set. Interesting facts in the museum also.

The Pula Arena was built around the 1st century AD and could seat over 26,000 spectators. In the 15th century many stones were taken from the amphitheater to build houses and other structures around Pula, but fortunately this practice... More

The Arena is centerpiece of Pula, like Colloseum in Rome. Its in very great shape so you can easily imagine the battles and spectators. Good thing is that you dont have to pay entrance because you can see more than 90% from outside, and take photo's of course.

In Roman era this was a place for gladiator battles and for cruel fun for Roman people. Today, it is place for great concerts and film festival in summer, Arena is in... More

Very impressive. Didn't pay to go in as there is not much to see inside which cannot be seen from the outside
