Pula is the economic centre of Istria and is situated in the southern part of the Istrian peninsula. Pula is known above all for its antique monuments, like the Roman amphitheatre, the Augustus temple, the victory gate of the Serge, but also as a great trading centre. The tourist infrastructure is outside of the town centre on the slopes of the peninsula Verudela, partly divided by hundred-year old fir forests. Characteristic of Verudela is the view of the fissured coast, with its islands, bays and beaches full of rocks and gravel. Pula is suited above all for family vacations and to lovers of classical music and interesting concerts are often organised in the amphitheatre. As examples, it is worth mentioning that in 2003 there was a concert by Placido Domingo and in 2004 by Luciano Pavarotti.There are many possibilities for various sport activities.
