    The city of Pula is situated in the most southern part of Istrian peninsula. It is the largest city and health, economic, informational, cultural, academic, educational, touristic, administrative, and historical center of Istria Country.
    Pula is one of few towns in the world which features remains of many ancient Roman buildings with very well preserved, Arena. Amphitheatre or Arena was built in the 1st century BC and it is now integrated in the modern town of Pula, which has developed in the 19th century. Every part of Pula is a reminder of past times, especially the Roman era, with its historical monuments from that time like City walls, small Roman theatre, the Twin Gates, the Arch of the Sergii and many other. Pula Castle or Kastel is an old fortress built by Venetians. It is located on a small hill in the centre of Pula. Because of its dominating position, the castle was always used for defence of the bay, town and port. The fortress was built between 1630 and 1633, constructed on a design from French military engineer Antonio De Villa, so it belongs to the French style. It was always a powerful defensive point for Venetian control of the Adriatic. The stone from huge Roman theatre was used for its construction, along with the one from other quarries around town. The heart of the fortress has a rectangular shape, and four additional pentagonal towers increase its safety. The fortress has a shape of a flower. The castle was renovated several times. Even though there is a sing in the entrance with the year 1840, it was constructed before. It was part of town's fortification system. After the end of the World War I, the fortress has lost its importance. Today the castle houses the Historical Museum of Istria.
    Museum has a large collection of objects of historical, cultural, military, political and ethnographic character, in over 15 collections. It is know for hosting concerts, manifestations, shows, gatherings and movie projections, especially during the summer time.
