The ancient city of Pula lies on Istria’s southwest coast, and is widely regarded as the region’s main hub. In fact, it has been Istria’s administrative centre since Roman times.
The Forum, the old town's bustling Roman piazza, dates back to the 2nd century BC. It was originally used for public gatherings, political demonstrations and religious speeches. Now it's a bustling square dotted with pavement bars and cafes. A hub of activity day and night, it’s the beating heart of Pula's old town.
Today the Forum offers a potted architectural history of Pula, with buildings from ancient, medieval and modern eras.
Covering an area of 39 x 82 metres, the Forum is lined by buildings with arched colonnades that were originally built to protect Roman townsfolk from the sun. On the fourth side of the piazza is the Temple of Augustus, which dates back to the 2nd century and was dedicated to Emperor Augustus. It's one of the finest examples of architecture from the early Roman Empire.
Pula is crammed with ancient Roman history, and the old town is a popular haunt with culture-hungry tourists. In a single day you can visit the Roman Forum, the Temple of Augustus and the impressive Pula Arena, which is situated just outside the city walls. The arena is the sixth largest Roman amphitheatre in the world, and one of the best preserved. It also hosts a variety of summer concerts and festivals.
