Pula (Croatian pronunciation: [pǔːla] (About this sound listen); Italian and Istro-Romanian: Pola) is the largest city in Istria County, Croatia and the eighth largest city in the country, situated at the southern tip of the Istria peninsula, with a population of 57,460 in 2011. It is known for its multitude of ancient Roman buildings, the most famous of which is the Pula Arena, one of the best preserved Roman amphitheaters, and its beautiful sea. The city has a long tradition of wine making, fishing, shipbuilding, and tourism. It used to be Istria's administrative centre since ancient Roman times, until Pazin became its administrative centre in 1991.
Actually I wanted to do Rovinj, or the Brijuni Islands ( next to Pula), which are a purely holiday destination but it would have been way too difficult to guess.
So I decided to pull a Pula guess for our Romanian friends (Pula means d*ck in Romanian). Would they have been here they would have guessed it at once.
Yes, it is. Pula and Rovinj are very attractive places for foreign tourists. It was once known as the Austrian Riviera too, then Yugoslav leader Tito had a summer residence on the Brijuni Islands for more than 30 years. The history of the Brijuni Islands is quite interesting; read it if you have time.
