Pula is one of the most picturesque destinations in the world, with an unrivalled fusion of ancient ruins and stunning, natural scenery. Fall in love with Croatia and visit this sublime city for an unforgettable holiday.
Located at the southern tip of the Istrian peninsula, the city is often referred to as being Croatia’s best kept secret. Discover the eccentric character of this luscious expanse of greenery, ancient streets, and ragged coastline.
Stumble upon unspoiled beaches, where you’ll find a haven to treasure. Lounge in serenity, with the only sounds you hear being that of the crystal clear waters lapping over the sandy cove.
Stroll down the labyrinth of cobbled streets and you’ll be immersed in genuine, Croatian culture. Stop and sip some of the region's finest wines, watching as the world passes by in this dreamy location.
We guarantee that you’ll be relaxing in style at the end of the day, too. Our accommodation is handpicked carefully by our expert travel team, bringing you only the best that Pula has to offer.
Pula is made for wandering, with cloisters of streets housing some of the most authentic Croatian experiences. Sample grapes in one of the tavernas, find handcrafted goods in tucked away marketplaces, and stop for coffee on Giardini Street — often referred to as Croatia’s equivalent of Las Ramblas in Barcelona.
Travel through the divine architecture of the city, from the Temple of Augustus, to the Arch of The Sergii; there are some breathtaking reminders of the country’s origin to uncover in Pula.
After eating in the city on an evening, be sure to head down to Pula’s working port and you’ll be just in time for the light show which illuminates the entire surroundings.

Pula’s cuisine is a fusion of its ancestry, with Italian, Venetian and Austro-Hungarian influences found in many of its most popular dishes. Tuck into a traditional light lunch of Istrian pršut (dried ham), olives, and cheese, and enjoy a savoury delight to fuel your day of exploring.
Istria is also famed for its truffle supply, both black and white are plentiful in the area and the distinctive taste comes in a multitude of selections. You’ll find it infused in pesto, oils and even honey, so make sure to sample each one!
Enjoy a Croatian dessert speciality such as cherry strudel, or find the perfect gelato flavour combination to cleanse your palette — washed down with a glass of Malvasia, Istria’s popular export.
