Photo tour of Croatia, episode #4: Pula Arena
The Arena is a 2000 years old colosseum built by the Romans in the city of Pula and it’s a distinctive mark of this city.
Although some of its walls needed to be restored, the Arena is still well-preserved, thanks to the amazing architectural skills of the ancient Romans.
Just like the Colosseum of Rome, the Arena of Pula hosted some of the most popular and bloodiest shows ever: the famous gladiator fights.
Today, the amphitheatre is not only the main tourist attraction in Pula, but it also fulfills its initial purpose of hosting shows and live performances such as concerts and music festivals.
