About The Arena, Pula

An architectural masterpiece, an ancient roman amphitheatre and one of the largest surviving Roman arenas in the world. The arena is the most visited tourist destination in Pula. With reconstructions and addition happening for centuries, the arena is first believed to be built in between 27 BC-68 AD.

Considered as one of the best preserved monuments in the world, this aesthetically pleasing structure is built in limestone with the height of exterior walls being 96.5 feet. This four towered arena has 15 gates and series of underground passages. There were also fragrant water fountains in every tower and what now stands today as an amphitheatre was built in the reign of legendary Emperor Augustus.

The amphitheatre is the venue for the remarkable Pula film festival celebrating local as well as international films. With a seating capacity of around 3000, the arena is used as a stage for concerts, theatrical performances, Ice-hockey games and also in cinemas like the Shakespeare's revenge tragedy Titus Andronicus.

Undoubtedly must-visit!

The Arena, Pula Reviews

  • Incredible Roman arena! Very large and very well preserved. The only other Roman arena that I have seen that was better was in Rome!

  • Lovely arena in the city centre. Lit up very nicely in the evenings. If your timing is right, you could catch performances even.

  • Fascinating monument. Don't miss the basement. Although more content could be added to make things more attractive.

  • It’s great to get to experience such a well-preserved piece of history like this. However, we were a little disappointed that some of the more interesting parts were fenced off, such as where the gladiators/animals would come out into the arena from. There was also a large stage set up in the middle for a Dizzee Rascal concert that was due to take place. I’m not sure how often the stage is set up there but it kind of lessened the experience.

  • Pretty cool altgough you can see it all from walking around the outside so do not really need to pay to enter
