If the stunning coastline, calm Adriatic waters, intriguing culture and rich history isn’t quite enough to entice you, then add in a wealth of exciting activities and a variety of unforgettable excursions and we believe you have the perfect destination for an extraordinary adventure – Welcome to Pula, Croatia!

With its beautiful Roman architecture, medieval churches, and Italian buildings, there is plenty to see and do in Pula - make sure you take the time to visit the magnificent Roman Amphitheater!

Travel the short distance to Premantura where the warm shallow waters of the Istrian Coast makes the ideal spot for beginners to don their snorkeling equipment and explore the sea bed below or stay above the waves and try their hand at stand up paddle boarding.
