Located on the southwestern tip of the Istrian peninsula, Pula is an exhilarating mix of urban grit and Roman antiquities, with secluded rocky beaches a short bus ride away. The city's modest population doubles in summer months, tourists forever flocking here to see perfectly preserved examples of Roman architecture. Add to that the crowds from music festivals Outlook and Dimensions, and the city’s international, bustling vibe dips well into September. Most of the city's highlights are within walking distance of the centre, but a short bus ride is necessary if you want to visit one of Pula's fine shingle beaches.
