Pula

Three-thousand-year-old Pula is Istria's yachting mecca and attracts many sailing enthusiasts. Pula is the largest and most important city in Istria, located in the south of the Istrian peninsula. It is a great cultural and historical center, as well as transit port. Its ancient buildings dating back to Roman times are famous, with the greatest being the Roman Arena which dominates the town. In the past it was used for gladiator fights while today it is an important monument and a centre of cultural and musical events.


 Further south along the indented shoreline, the Premantura Peninsula hides a spectacular nature park, the protected cape of Kamenjak.  A succession of resorts lines the shore and there are long stretches of unspoiled rocky coast. Starting in Pula you can cruise the Brijuni National Park or sail over to the Kvarner Islands of Krk, Cres, Pag, Rab, Losinj; or the smaller and less crowded islands of Unije, Ilovik, Susak, Silba and Premuda.


The town of Pula contains a number of nautical marinas and ports. If you want to rent a boat in Pula, then good charter bases are the ACI Pula Marina, the Veruda Marina and the ACI Pomer Marina.


Pula is very well connected with other parts of Croatia and with Slovenia and Italy. The main railway and a bus stations are in town, with regular lines to the whole of Croatia. Pula International Airport is located only 5 kilometers away from the city and there are airports in Rijeka, Trieste and Zagreb which are also close to Pula.


The pretty islands and coastlines around here boast clear waters, great bays for shelter, short distances between them and mostly ideal sailing conditions. The winds are mostly friendly especially in the summer months, although sometimes less stable in Kvarner Bay. Sailing in these parts, you will see why Croatia is famous for its natural beauty.
