Amphitheatre in Pula / Arena
The amphitheater was erected in the 1st century during the reign of Emperor Vespasian. With its elliptical shape, dimensions of 132 x 105 m and height of 32 m, the Arena is the largest ancient structure in Istria and one of the six larges Roman amphitheaters in the world. Its primary purpose was for gladiator combats and could hold about 20,000 spectators. Today it is open for visiting tourists.
The Euphrasian Basilica bears the name of the Poreč's bishop who had it erected in the 6th century. Even though the old floor mosaic has been preserved, its most valuable mosaics are in the apsidal section. The entire complex (three-naved church, baptismal, atrium and what was once the bishop’s palace) were placed on UNESCO’s list of protected world cultural heritage in 1997.
The Brijuni archipelago with surrounding underwater world enjoys the status of being the only Istrian National Park and due to the luxurious flora and fauna and cultural-historical heritage it is ranked among the most beautiful Mediterranean archipelagos. The Brijuni are comprised of two larger and twelve smaller islands. The mild Mediterranean climate, an abundance of sunny days and pleasant air temperature were favorable for the growth of hundreds of plant varieties. About a hundred years ago the Brijuni botanical gardens began to settle animals from various regions of the world so that in 1912 zoological gardens were founded. Today the Brijuni, among other things, are a habitat for various bird species, deer, mouflons and other wild game. The island Veliki Brijuni is also adorned by a thousand year old olive tree, Roman diggings, safari park and dinosaur footprints.
The protected Kamenjak Cape, this unusual indented southern most cape, is interesting not only because of its nearly 500 plant species but also because of its beautiful coves, “wild” beaches, clean sea and attractive underwater world.
