Arena is the most famous symbol of Pula and also one of the best preserved Roman amphitheaters in the world. It is a unique building with which starts and ends every tour of Pula.
In the middle of the building there is battleground where gladiators were fighting in the past.
The battle was prepared on the underground floor and today there is an interesting exhibition "Olive growing and viticulture of Istria in ancient times", where you can get acquainted with mills, amphorae, precipitation pots and other machines and objects that were once used in agriculture.
And if you do not decide to visit the Arena as a tourist, many events and concerts are organized here so you will probably sooner or later visit this pearl of Pula.
During the summer months, there are held gladiatorial battles every week as part of the antique historical-entertainment event "Spectacvla Antiqva."
The Arena also hosts various other summer events such as the Film Festival, the Horse Festival and the Opera Season.
