Pula Area

Pula Area holidays

Croatia’s Pula region – also known as the Istrian Riviera – is a triangular peninsula that dangles off the Adriatic coast just below Slovenia and the north-east coast of Italy. The Pula region’s resorts are built for fun and sun, but it’s also packed with ancient treasures waiting to be discovered.

Historically popular

The Romans, the Venetians and the Austrians have all ruled the Pula region at one time or another. And it’s easy to see why they were so keen on the spot. It comes with 250km of sun-soaked coastline backed by dense forests, hill-hugging villages and rocky cliffs.

Modern resorts

The region is a summer holiday hotspot and a sprinkling of modern resorts has sprung up to cater for the sun-seeking crowds. Pula town, Rovinj, Poreč, Umag and Medulin are all geared towards fun and sun, but look more closely and you’ll still find plenty of traditional charm.

Ancient attractions

The Romans have left their mark all over the region – the beautifully preserved amphitheatre in Pula is a real highlight. It’s actually one of the largest surviving Roman amphitheatres in the world! But you should keep your eyes peeled for Venetian architecture too, especially in the port town of Rovinj.

Pula Area of resorts

Porec

An Italian-accented town on the Adriatic coast, Poreč mixes beautiful natural scenery with architectural heritage and plenty of seaside fun.

Pula (Resort of)

With its rich blend of Roman history and unspoiled coastline, Pula offers its visitors a diverse taste of Croatian culture.

Rovinj

Sitting pretty on the water, with its Italian touches and Mediterranean finishes, dense, wooded surroundings and crystal clear beaches are waiting in Rovinj.

Umag

The pretty old town of Umag is all burnt orange roofing and mazes of old-world streets, encased in tall walls.

Opatija

An old celebrity favourite, Opatija is almost equal parts views and history.

Rabac

White bays and wide-reaching scenery make Rabac a great coastal pick for Croatian beauty.

Vrsar

Centred on a pretty port, the picturesque village of Vrsar runs at a gentle pace and preserves classic Croatian culture in spades.

Labin

Medieval and Mediterranean merge together in this circle of terracotta rooftops, snuggled within dense hillside.

Vodnjan

For weird and wonderful in equal measure, there’s no place quite like Vodnjan.

Beaches

How does a huge, sandy shore enclosed by rocky mountains sound? Or maybe even small but smooth golden-sand stretches, all in wildly idyllic settings, and backed by fragrant pine trees? Whether you fancy a family-friendly choice or somewhere just great for watersports, Rhodes has all beachfront bases covered.
