Today, besides Pula Airport, it serves as a popular gateway for visitors looking to explore the westernmost parts of Croatia and, in particular, the region's long stretch of golden Adriatic coastline.

    Full of tourist interest, Pula is an enchanting place blessed with an ancient historic quarter known as the Roman Forum, which has been the nucleus of the city for over two thousand years.
