The Roman Temple of Augustus also still stands in the city, and the small adjoining museum houses various stone carvings and relics from the 1st century.

For a taste of local life, visit the lively Pula Market. With around 60 stalls selling local fresh fish, meat, vegetables, and everything in between, the market is a great place to take a stroll and get to know the locals.

A trip to Pula would be incomplete without visiting one of its exceptionally scenic nearby beaches. One of the most popular is the Verudela peninsula, which can be easily accessed by bus from the city. Spend the day relaxing on the shingle beach in front of clear blue waters, or take shelter from the sun at Aquarium Pula.
