Pocket Guide: Pula Arena Pula Arena Hotels

Pula's most visited attraction is the Pula Arena, a remarkably well-preserved Roman amphitheatre. It’s the sixth largest in the world, and overlooks the harbour on the town's northeastern reaches.

Pula Arena: An Ancient Venue Still in Superb Condition

Completed in 68 AD during the reign of Emperor Vespasian, Pula, or Pietas Julia as it was called then, was a regional hub of Roman rule. Dominating the outskirts of Pula's old town, the Pula Arena is the only remaining Roman amphitheatre in the world to have all four side towers and the classic Roman architectural orders intact. Back in the first century, this impressive limestone-built arena was used to host gladiatorial contests, which in their heyday would attract audiences of nearly 23,000.

What to See at Pula Arena

Look carefully and you can still see the slabs of stone used to secure the arena's velarii, a sail-like fabric roof which protected the crowds from the sun. There's also a series of underground passages to explore, originally used by the animals and fighters. The passages now house a museum with displays of ancient viticulture and olive oil making equipment.

How to Visit the Arena

Situated outside of Pula's old city walls, the arena is a great day trip for visitors to Istria. It's open daily to visitors all year round, and during the summer months it also hosts Spectacvla Antiqva, a programme of battle re-enactments, Roman workshops and authentic food and drink stalls. Pula Arena also used as a grand venue for concerts and festivals, including the acclaimed Pula Film Festival, the oldest film event in Croatia.
