About the Pula Arena
The most famous and important monument in the City of Pula, the starting and ending point of every sightseeing tour, is the Amphitheater, popularly called the Pula Arena, which was once the site of gladiator fights. It was built in the 1st century AD during the reign of Emperor Vespasian, at the same time as the magnificent Colosseum in Rome.
The ground plan is elliptical, the longer axis measuring about 130 m and the shorter one about 100 m. Gladiator fights took place in the central flat area called the arena, while the spectators could sit on the stone tiers or stand in the gallery. It is believed that the Amphitheater could seat about 20,000 spectators. Local limestone was used for its construction. In the Middle Ages it was the site of knights’ tournaments and fairs.
Today, it is the venue for many different events – Pula Film Festival, various concerts, opera, ballet, sports competitions… since its capacity is about 5,000 spectators. The underground passages, once used by the gladiators, nowadays host a regular exhibition of viticulture and olive growing in Istria in ancient times. The exhibits include reconstructions of machines once used for the production of olive oil and wine (mills, presses, vessels) and amphorae used for storing and transporting olive oil and wine.
The city of Pula (or Pola, in Italian) is the largest city in Istria County, Croatia. Located at the southern tip of the Istrian peninsula, Pula is known for its multitude of ancient Roman buildings, the most famous of which is the Pula Arena, one of the best-preserved Roman amphitheatres. The city has a long tradition of winemaking, fishing, shipbuilding, and tourism, and was the administrative centre of Istria from ancient Roman times until superseded by Pazin in 1991.
Nowadays, Pula is the ideal city for the best entertainment. Open-air terraces with great music, delicious food accompanied with a glass of fine Istrian wine, night walks through the lively city streets, charming narrow climbs in the historic centre and different types of music heard everywhere – Pula offers all of this and much more!
