Picturesque Pula is a great base for travelers wanting to explore Croatian Istria. The Old Town is packed with historic treasures, the highlight of which is the magnificent Roman amphitheatre. Substantial parts of the old city walls and gates remain and there are many old churches and monasteries, and the unearthed remains of palaces and houses from antiquity. Although Croatia can be expensive, Pula has a lot to offer budget travelers with low-cost accommodation options, cheap places to eat, and inexpensive tourist attractions.
You can catch a boat each morning from Pula Harbor to the beautiful Brijuni Islands, which are designated a national park; they were much beloved by statesman Marshal Tito, who had two houses there. There are also boat excursions to other resorts along the coast, such as Porec and Rovinj.
Events such as the Pula International Film Festival ensure that the city is lively year round, but Pula is primarily a summer resort (the best beaches are a couple of kilometres outside the city). It's a popular clubbing resort for younger visitors. Visit Pula and you’ll see families, older holiday makers, and groups of young people happily coexisting.
There are plenty of options for lower-priced accommodation and hostels in Pula. In high summer, local people with rooms to rent to tourists wait for new arrivals at the town’s bus and train stations. If taking a room this way, be sure to ask to see on a map the exact location before you agree to anything as the cheapest accommodation is usually some distance from the main sights. Alternatively you can make your way into town and knock at houses showing the sign of a bed or the notice "Sobe," which means "rooms to let." Outside of the centre, conventional hostels can be found in nearby Fazana.

"Brilliant location, you won't find better if you're after a relaxing time. It's a long way from town but the bus is good and the walk is nice.

Cool Book Hostel
"Clean rooms but far away. - We stayed in a tree-person room that was clean with nice linen. The showers were not as clean, but hey -- hot water. The real problem was the length to the city and the beach. The hostel was very far away with 25 minutes to the beach and 10/15 to the city. It was easy to get to the beach with the same bus, but the way home was much more tricky. Besides that it was an alright stay with a very helpful receptionist!"...

Pula Travel Tips & Suggestions
People could tell you that Pula is just a summer resort and that it's full of tourists, and maybe it is, but Pula is also one of the most beautiful towns in Istria and the Croatian coast! It has lots of interesting monuments to see (the first one, the Arena) but is small enough to not getting too tired. In fact, to see the town you just need a few hours, then you can lie on the beach or just walk through the cosy streets, take a sit in a terrace, and have a cocktail or a delicious ice cream.
