AMPHITHEATRE OF EMPEROR VESPASIAN IN PULA

Amphitheatre in Pula called The Pula Arena is the sixth largest Roman amphitheater in the world and the largest monument of ancient architecture in Croatia. Constructed in the 1st century AD at the same time as Colosseum in Rome initially used for gladiator fights during the reign of Emperor Vespasian. It is an excellent example of uniquely beautiful Ancient Roman architecture.

It is the “only remaining Roman amphitheater to have four side towers and with all three Roman architectural orders entirely preserved.” Opened for sightseeing during the day offering affordable ticket prices but in the nighttime, it is a perfect location for all kinds of concerts, festivals, operas, etc. Excellent location reduces your effort with finding places to eat or just relax from sightseeing because there is a selection of café bars and restaurants in this area.

It is definitely a must-visit!
