Pula is the largest and southernmost city on the Istrian peninsula of Croatia. The city and surrounding area was conquered and inhabited by the Romans in the second century BC. Today, the city is noted for the many well-preserved Roman buildings and structures, including the Roman Forum, Triumphal Arch, the Amphitheatre, and defensive walls and city gates.
