Plaza
“Just like in Roman times, Pula’s forum is the city’s main square. So just as it would have witnessed important gatherings two millennia ago, whenever there’s a big event you can be sure something will be happening in the forum. During the summer there are concerts and other cultural events here, as well as big crowds if the Croatian national football team is taking part in the Euros or World Cup. It’s also a impressive setting, with other Roman monuments and the renaissance-style city hall providing a fitting sense of ceremony”
