About Pula (source: Wikipedia):
Pula is the largest city in the Istria peninsula on the Northern Adriatic coast. It is known for its mild climate, smooth sea, and unspoiled nature. The natural beauty of Pula's surrounding countryside and turquoise water of the Adriatic have made the city an internationally popular summer vacation destination.
The city is best known for its many surviving ancient Roman buildings, the most famous of which is its 1st century amphitheatre, which is among the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the world and locally known as the Arena. This is one of the best preserved amphitheatres from antiquity and is still in use today during summer film festivals.
The pearl nearby is Brijuni national park visited by numerous world leaders since it was the summer residence of Josip Broz Tito.
