The Pula Arena
The Pula Arena is the most famous symbol of the city and one of the best-preserved Roman amphitheatres in the world. Its construction began during the reign of Emperor Augustus at the beginning of the 1st century.
This space, with a seat capacity of 23,000 spectators, was intended for combat between gladiators, hunting animals and also for public trials. Below the arena was a space where animals were kept in cages, but nowadays this space hosts a permanent exhibition entitled Production of Istrian olive oil and wine. Moreover, the Arena today is used for a variety of cultural events.
