Pula’s most interesting sites are its Roman ruins. Of these, the 1st-century amphitheater (“the Arena”) is the most impressive.

Portrait of the Artist

For almost a year (October, 1904 to March, 1905), when he was a young man of 22, Irish author James Joyce lived in Pula, where he taught English to Austro-Hungarian naval officers through the Berlitz School. Today, Joyce is immortalized as a bronze statue, sitting at a table outside the coffee bar Uliks (Ulysses) just steps from the building where he taught.
