Pula is the unofficial capital and cultural centre of Istria (www.pula.net): Pula’s landmark is the huge, good preserved amphitheatre of the Roman Empire. To the tourist features from that time belong also the triumphal arc and the temple of Augustus. A walk through the centre of Pula appears like a trip through history. Also Dante Alighieri mentions Pula in his “Divine Comedy”…

In 1987 Venice and its lagoon became a UNESCO World Cultural and Heritage site. Artists and town planners were often inspired by the city, not only because of its architecture and legends, but especially by it’s atmosphere and the lifestyle lived by it’s residents which is hard to find in any another city.  All these features make Venice one of the greatest tourist attractions worldwide.
