    I was amazed by how old this structure was and yet it is still being used by the people of Pula today.

    We visited the aquarium with our children who were delighted with everything they saw. The photos we take with us will be valuable memories of that wonderful family time.

    This is a cool, old Venetian fort. You can walk around the walls, climb a small tower, and get some excellent views of the town. There is a great view of the Pula coliseum from here. It is a bit of a walk up the hill but not too difficult.

    This was one of our last places to visit during the tour of the city.
    It is on the forum and a nice place to have lunch.

    This is a beautiful Roman triumphal arch right at the start of the old town walking street in Pula. Take a photo or two then meander on down the street for a nice afternoon. Don't forget to visit the Venetian fort at the top of the hill for some nice views.

    Followed the signs but still had to look for it! If you follow the sign which takes you into a car park, turn left and you’ll see a tiny handwritten sign. The mosaic is tucked away at the back of the car park by the entrance to a dentists! Below ground level and protected by a grill, you look down on it. It’s in remarkable condition and worth persevering to find to admire such a well preserved piece of history.

    Quick trip with no additional background apart from what you could read en route.
    Cool & damp so enjoyable relief on this very hot summers day!
    Hard to believe that the tunnels could house most of the population of Pula some 40000.
    Easy way to get to other side of Kastel Hill

    We did not realise until we got back that these change colour, so we only saw them when they were purple/pink which was quite impressive on its own. Certainly cheered us up on a dark evening

    Pula's Communal Palace is situated at the North - East end of Forum Square (Trg Forum), next to Temple of Augustus. Actually, Town Hall was built on the very site of Temple of Diana, which was used as a rudimentary town hall since 9th century. Its northern wall was incorporated into new communal building, and still can be visible. Construction of new City Palace that began in second half of 13th century and was probably finished in year 1295. Since its completion town hall undergone few changes. The main ones took a place at the end of the 15th century when building has been rebuilt in Renaissance style (when characteristic arcades were added), and then in 17th century, that's when Baroque windows were added. At some point of all these renovations town hall acquired an attic and clock ( in 19th century?); as they can still be visible on some old post cards and photographs; but these two elements weren't preserved, and what we can see now is simple, yet, harmonious facade. Town Hall is very easy to find. It's right beyond Newlywed Park (Park mladenaca), between Flaciusova Street and Forum Square. Next to the same square can be found Tourist Office, cafe, restaurant and accommodations. Surprisingly enough, it wasn't very busy place.

    Somewhat simple & unadorned & whilst well maintained is overshadowed by the abundance of older historic - & more prominent - buildings.
    Our visit was little more than a walk-by & grab a photo.
    My wish was to have been able to spend more time in Pula ... so much to see & learn.

    Porta Gemina is a double Roman city gate. It was built at the end of the 2nd century. It was one of the ten city gates of Pula, which stood on the north side of the capital. U can see here only the gate, nothing more, so take a picture and continue to Fortress Kastel.
