Where history and charm hide around every corner

This seafront city on the tip of Croatia's Istrian Peninsula attracts visitors with its protected harbor, nearby beaches, growing arts scene, and Roman ruins. With history that dates back to the prehistoric era, Pula has been settled by the Romans, Ostrogoths and Venetians, along with the Allied Forces during World War II. This makes for a diverse and engaging destination all year long, whether you prefer to bounce along the beaches or hop from historic site to site. Book a Pula vacation rental, and find your very own Croatian home away from home.

Festivals and fun, all under the Croatian sun

As Istria's largest city, Pula attracts some of the region's most famous festivals. Each July, The Pula Film Festival takes over the town, and late summer kicks off music festival season, which celebrates everything from dubstep to reggae to house music. When you're not filling your culture cup, take a day for adults-only at the spa, or treat the whole family to a bike ride around the city. Though Pula's beach scene isn't the city's main attraction, there are plenty of beautiful Croatian sun spots nearby, perfect for a day of picnicking, swimming, and boating.

Where a storied past meets an artsy present

Pula's art scene is growing quickly, with exhibits in the gallery spaces of the fully renovated former church, Sveta Srca, as well as the Museum of Contemporary Art of Istria. If you're prefer learning the city's history, make the rounds at the extremely well-preserved Roman ruins. Today, the forum still serves as a social meeting place, with tons of cafes and outdoor restaurants, while the arena hosts a huge variety of events and concerts. Or, take a tour of the Temple of Augustus, which may date back as early as 2 BC.

Yes, yes, yes for summer fun, not so much for winter sun

The shoulder seasons in Pula are the real stunner. Book your Pula vacation rental in May or June, or just after summer ends, in September or October. The weather is fantastic in late spring and early fall, while the crowds are smaller and the prices are low. July and August are hot and sunny with large crowds, but you'll be in town for some of the city's biggest festivals. November through April is truly the off season, thanks to unpredictable weather and a lot of hotels that close for the winter.

An urban oasis in between stunning beaches

Pula is Istria's urban center, especially compared to the rest of the peninsula. Book your Pula vacation rental near the stunning waterfront for views of the Adriatic Sea, and you'll also find a cargo port, a marina full of yachts, and a forested stretch of beach, complete with a promenade. If you're craving more of the great outdoors, an easy excursion to some of Croatia's famous coastline is in order. Consider the sandy beaches of Medulin, Premantura, or the Kamenjak peninsula, or take a boat ride from Pula out to the islands of the Brijuni National Park.
