Most tourists visit in the summer months (July, August, September), with most tourist spots and restaurants closing between October and May. Great deals are abound if you visit off season. The Irish writer James Joyce lived in Pula with his wife Nora in 1904. He taught languages to Austro-Hungarian naval officers at the local Berlitz school. The Joyces lived in Pula for only one year before moving north to Trieste. Like Umago, Pola too is officially bilingual - Italian is also spoken by part of the population, while road signs are in both languages.
Get in to Pula
There is a scheduled bus service from the bus station in town to the airport. Buses are operated by Brioni and connect to most major flights. The cost of a one-way ticket is 25kn. A taxi from the bus station to the city should be around 85 kuna in the low season and much higher in the summer.
It is possible to also consider Rijeka Airport on the island of Krk and Trieste Airport in nearby Italy to access Pula as they are close by and offer flights to different destinations.
Hitchhiking from Zagreb works very well. In Zagreb start from the petrol station after the "Billa" supermarket on the southside of the Sava river. In Rijeka ask people to drop you off at the little SOS stop after a pretty sharp right bend of the motor way around Rijeka.
Venezia Lines ferry connects Pula with Venice. It runs five times a week, travel time is around 3hr. Services are only during summer months.
Taxis are mostly reliable in Pula. The current start price is 15kn and 7kn per kilometer, Sundays and nights are 20% overcharged. Be sure to have the meter running and be sure to seat only in taxis displaying the Pula Taxi sticker with the city coat of arms and the taxi number. Alternatively, try and set up a price with the driver especially if going to the neighboring towns of Medulin, Štinjan, etc.
As for inter-town buses, Pula is well connected to other Istrian towns and Croatian destination with a few international destinations as well.Tickets and information may be found at the bus station. The Brioni booth serves as the main information desk and sells tickets for all companies besides Autotrans whose tickets have to be bought on the opposite desk. Beware that all buses have a luggage area. The service is charged separately from the ticket and it usually costs 7kn. There should be no problem taking a small backpack or a small suitcase on the bus as long as you can fit it in the overhead compartment (which is rather small) or under your seat/legs. Every ticket can be refunded at the ticket office (a fee will be charged).
What to see in Pula
Serbian Orthodox church of Saint Nicholas from the 6th century, located in 45 Castropola Street, just under the citadel (Kaštel). It was extensively rebuilt in the 1200s, and from the XVII century it belongs to the city’s Orthodox faithful. There is only one priest serving the city and the nearby village of Peroj, residing in Peroj, so if you wish to visit the church, you should arrange it beforehand with the priest.
Kaštel, a Castle from the 17th century features Istrian history museum
Malo rimsko kazalište, Little Roman theatre behind the Archeology museum
Mornaričko groblje, Sailors' cemetery (1866. - about 150 000 soldiers of Austro-Hungarian nations were buried there) and Mornarička crkva, Sailors' Church
Karlo Rojc, former military school, and later barracks, built by Austro-Hungarians (1870.) They are used since 1998. as a cultural and social center. Many non-government organizations have their offices here, also there are music studios and venues, and art colonies. It is worth to go and walk inside this building, because over the years walls were painted with murals and art installations.
