The Istria Times Sinke

Sometimes you don’t need fancy landmarks and unique historical localities for a pleasant stay in foreign country. A simple walk through local forest may be just the thing to relax and feel inspired for the upcoming adventures. One such locality waits for you in the very center of Pula, a gorgeous Croatian town on the shores of Istrian Peninsula. Called Sijanska forest, it is a park in the broad center of the city.

Because it provided haven to Jason and the crew of legendary ship Argo in Greek Myth, Pula has been regarded as a City of Fugitives since ancient times. It is easy to escape the daily stress below the gently branches of Sijanska trees and feel awakened by refreshing sea air coming from the coast. Consider visiting this destination during your voyage through Istrian landscapes and enjoy its peaceful vibe, especially during the year’s colder season.
