What a beautiful city! Have been to Croatia a few times but never visited Pula. It is quite ancient and there's loads to see if you enjoy history and architecture. Recommend it!

Croatia Mini Guide
With over 1,000 miles of coastline stretching along the beautiful Adriatic Sea, Croatia certainly takes time to explore, especially at the laid back pace for which the country is famous. The central part of this Balkan nation is where the capital Zagreb can be found and Croatia is bordered by Hungary, Slovenia, Serbia and Bosnia Herzegovina.

Though recently war torn, Croats have done a fine job of restoring their cultural heritage and many parts of the stunning southern city Dubrovnik have been so well rebuilt you would never know that they were extensively bombed. Today Dubrovnik is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Croatia is split into regions including Dalmatia, a strip of mainland and islands bordering Bosnia-Herzegovina, the north western Peninsula of Istria and the Kvarner Gulf in the northern part of Dalmatia. The north eastern area of forests and fields in known as Slavonia while the north central highlands are considered to be Central Croatia.

Almost every airline you could possibly think of has flights to Croatia including Aer Lingus, Clickair, Easyjet, SkyEurope and Wizzair.
