We will make you wanna explore Croatia

Pula is the largest city in Istria County of Croatia located at the southern tip of the Istria peninsula. There are numerous things which attract experienced and amateur tourists in this city. However, in this article, I will explore the reasons why you should avoid visiting Pula. Let's go! 

1. There is no sign that the Romans were here. The city gives an impression of a typical Croatian city.66832902 10214917547680648 8504717145152684032 o
