This well-preserved ancient structure provides a lovely contrast with the 'modern' buildings in close proximity. It's amazing to think that something that is so old is still in such good condition. The Triumphal Arch of Sergius certainly forms an interesting and impressive 'entrance' to the pedestrian-friendly shopping zone. A great photo opportunity.

One of the "compulsory" Roman historical buildings that you can find in Pula. You won't miss it, but nothing special.

A triumphal entrance to the main shopping area - probably the same route when it was erected around 30 BC !!!! The arch of Sergius (Sergi) was erected by a wealthy widow to commemorate the role played by her husband and brothers at the Battle of Actium, where a fleet commanded by Octavian (later Emperor Augustus) was victorious over Mark...

We had a short visit and it was great. It is a nice place to look at it, and it is an interesting history attraction, but this is all.

We were walking from the arena, along the street where there is a section of the old city wall and right in the middle of a modern pedestrian shopping area, this 2000 year old arch welcomes those to the main shopping street. Fascinating when you think about the arch standing for so long while other buildings have come and gone,... More

Pula is a very old town and has many interesting monuments and buildings to prove this. The Arch and the parts of the old city walls still present, give you an idea of how the city was centuries ago.

Triumphal Arch in Pula is situated in the center of the city and I've seen it several times. It is amazing at night.

If you are in Pula, definitely make it a point to come see this as it's around a 10 minute walk from the Amphitheater. It's not worth a separate trip to Pula just to see this but if you are seeing the other sites it's worth it to come see this for the Roman history that is behind it. You... More
