Pula is the biggest city in Istria and is situated on southeast part of Istria, deep in protected bay. This place was known for Greek travelers and navigators, since its establishment is connected with Colchians. Pula is mentioned in the context of the story of Jason and Medea, who had stolen the golden fleece. The Colchians, who had chased Jason into the northern Adriatic, were unable to catch him and ended up settling in a place they called Polai, signifying “city of refuge”.
Pula has rich cultural history where the peak was during Roman Empire, so it’s not surprising that the main tourist attraction is Pula Arena (sixth amphitheatre in the Wolrd).
