Pula


Pula and Pomer Marinas

There are two marina’s in or around Pula, capital of the Istria region of Croatia.  Both are operated by the Croatian Yacht association and both are well designed, modern, and offer excellent facilities to visiting sailors.  ACI Pula benefits from being next to the historic ad beautiful city of Pula, whilst ACI Pomer is in the countryside where people have been building holiday villa’s since Roman times.

Pula

Pula is a magnificent city which National Geographic recently rated as one of the top ten cities in the world.  A city for thousands of years, the city is most famous for the Roman amphitheatre – the only one in the world that is still remarkably standing in its entirety – and for other buildings and forums from Roman times. 

Istria, the region of Croatia in which it stands, is often referred to as an untouched version of Tuscany, with hilltop towns, spectacular views, fine wines and sunshine.  Going further afield, the nearby Brijuni islands house the holiday homes of the A-list glitterati, ex-presidents and global royalty.

Pula has its own airport, located 5km out of town, which offers regular flights to much of western Europe, including London and Manchester in the UK.  It can also be reached by sea from Venice, or by road.

Things to see and do

It’s hard to visit Pula and not see the Roman amphitheatre – principally because the whole city is still based around it, and you’ll be glad to know that it is even visible from the ACI Pula marina.  There is a whole world of old town to discover, with historic monuments and gates dotted around the city, and even a museum dedicated to archaeology which has some interesting exhibits. 

Being Croatia, there are also a number of fine beaches within the vicinity, and, due to the nearly prevalent winds, it is one of the most popular places to kite-surf or wind-surf in Europe.

To top it all off, there are fossilised dinosaur footprints in the local national park which are, naturally, fascinating!

Local Events / Festivals

Pula has a number of festivals during the year, including festivals dedicated to film, live music and food – all are a cultural treat and well worth coinciding a visit with.

Where to Sail

Pula is located to the very north of Croatia, and is surrounded by some idyllic islands: the Brijuni islands, where the rich and famous spend their holidays; the unspoilt Kvarner gulf; Pag and Krk which boast enchanting medieval towns; and of course the Kornati archipelago, which is a string of islands, each more beautiful and enchanting than the last, and full of secret bays, charming anchorages, and cute fishing villages.  You don’t really need a compass – there is adventure and tranquillity in every direction.

You can fly into Pula directly from the UK.  The airport is on 7km east of Pula town centre, which means it’s only 11 minutes in a taxi (which PlainSailing.com can help you arrange, and which costs around 10 Euro / 100 Kuna for 4 people) or about 20 minutes using public transport (there are regular shuttle buses which link the airport to the main bus-station in Pula which cost 3 EUR or 30 Kuna per head) - the marina is less than a 500m downhill walk from the bus station.
