Adventurous Kate is a twenty-something who aims to show women that solo travel can be safe, easy, cheap and a lot of fun. She spends roughly half the year on the road, going wherever the opportunity of the moment takes her. While in Istria she found Pula to be a perfect base for exploring the rest of the region. Read why below.
While all flights to Istria land in Pula, most people skip the city and head straight to the beach resorts. Not us. We chose to stay in Pula because we wanted to see as much of Istria as we could, and we thought that basing ourselves in the city made the most sense. We also got to frolic in some Roman ruins, like the Pula Arena and the Forum.
Pula is an easy distance from most points of interest in Istria:
20 minutes to Premantura and the gateway to the beaches at Kamenjak
40 minutes to Rovinj (and you can stop in Vodnjan and Rovinj on the way)
60 minutes to Motovun and the hill towns of the far north
90 minutes to Rijeka and the gateway to the rest of Croatia.
