PulaJuly 10, 2017 in Croatia ⋅
We took the scenic route to Pula which added a few hours to our trip but it was worth it. We saw some beautiful countryside and unexpected sights along the way. Al did a great job driving for about 5-6 hours, a lot of it on narrow winding roads.
Pula is a seafront city on the tip of Croatia’s Istrian
Peninsula, Pula has been occupied, destroyed and rebuilt numerous times.The city has a long tradition of winemaking, fishing, shipbuilding, and tourism. It has also been Istria's administrative centre since ancient Roman times. It has its own Roman Ampitheatre, Pula Arena, constructed between 27 BC – 68 AD, much of it still standing to this day. The Romans also supplied the city with a water supply and sewage systems. Driving the west coast of the Istrisn Peninsula tomorrow as well hopefully some inland towns and staying the night at Rijeka.Read more
