The largest city with 75,000 inhabitants, situated on the peninsula has had a great past and invites the charters to dock here. The majority of the monuments in the old town date back to the Roman heyday in the first century.
One building in particular is very eye-catching. Right next to the ACI Marina behind Tito Park is the huge Amphitheater. It is reminiscent of the Colosseum in Rome and is the fifth largest Roman Theater in the world.
The impressive and well-preserved, although scooped facade gives the visitor an idea about the former importance of the construction force, which has a seating capacity for 2300 spectators.
In summer it is still being used for music and dance events. A large number of the local sailing and motor yachts are charter yachts. Pula is an ideal starting point for charter yachts with destination Croatian islands or Italy.

Also noteworthy is the Triumphal Arch of the Sergi family. It was built in the years 29-27 BC. Another masterpiece of architecture is the Temple of Augustus and the Chapel of the Basilica of St. Maria Formosa, which was created in 556 AD and comes up with precious mosaics. After seeing all these historic buildings one can deservedly sit in a cozy café in the town square and overlook the numerous Roman temple columns and fragments. The Town Hall itself was built in 1296 and is thus one of the older buildings in the city.
The port city of Pula is lays in a large bay and is very well protected from wind and weather through it having a peninsula and a breakwater. Being close to the Colosseum, the ACI Marina has all the facilities such as reception, restaurant, exchange office, sanitary facilities, 10 ton crane, parking, car rental, Port Authority and Customs office in the immediate vicinity. Your charter yacht can also be fuelled up directly next to the Marina.
A secure entrance to the main harbor can be found between the head of the breakwater (extension of Rt Kumpar) is marked by the green fire (Blz.gn 3s6sm 9m) and the Rt Prostina, characterized by the red fire (Blz.r.3s 5sm 9m). Then heading directly for the southern tip of the little island Andrija, where you will find the green fire (Blz gn 2s 1sm 7m). The small island Andrija can be avoided both on the south side as well as on the north side. Here is the passage between the little island and the larger island of Katrina, which can be easily identified at night (two red and green lights show you the passage). For the subsequent passage another fire on the island Uljanik (Fl G 5s 7m 3M) leads you to the marina of Pula. After passing those fires with your yacht the marina will be in sight. In the dark please watch out for some of the unlit moored buoys. The speed limit in the harbor is 8 knots.
