A few facts about Pula
Pula is an old and beautiful sea town at the tip of the Istrian peninsula in north-western Croatia.
Its history started about 3000 years ago when it was built by Illyrians.
177 BC the Romans occupied Istria.
After the destruction of the Western Roman Empire, the Istrian peninsula was devastated by Ostrogoths.
Slavs came in Istria during migration period in 7th century but mostly lived on countryside.
Official rulers in Pula changed quite frequently in the Middle Ages, from the Republic of Venice to Genoa, to Illyrian Provinces and Austria--Hungary until World War I, when it was given to Italy and after the Second World War, it became part of communist Yugoslavia.
In World War I, the port of Pula was the main base for Austro-Hungarian dreadnoughts and other naval forces of the Empire.
Ever since the collapse of Yugoslavia in 1991, Pula has been part of the Republic of Croatia.
Its interesting to note that Pula was quoted by the famous Italian poet Dante Alighieri, who had visited Pula, in the Divine Comedy:As Pola, along the Quarnero, that marks the end of Italy and bathes its boundaries.
The famous Irish writer James Joyce lived here, teaching English mainly to Austro-Hungarian naval officers stationed at the Pula base, from October 1904 until March 1905. A statue of the writer stands in Pula in his honour.
