Hotel Park Plaza Histria

Offering spectacular views across the Adriatic Sea, the Hotel Park Plaza Histria is a complex that knows how to make the most of its enviable location. Just 50m from the beach and with access to public boat services that visit a neighbouring island half a kilometre away, no two days are ever the same.

Within the complex you’ll find contemporary bedrooms, an upmarket pool area complete with bar and a buffet restaurant that prepares a wide range of fresh dishes daily. Tennis and squash courts are available for use and when you need a little extra help to relax, the spa is ready to welcome you inside.

Overview of Pula

Holidays to the Istrian Riviera might not be as well known as some, but they are most definitely on the up, thanks to Croatia’s undeniable tourist appeal. Combining beautiful natural vistas with picturesque coastlines and traditional villages, the region is becoming a must-visit destination, with certain areas standing out.

Pula, home to the Hotel Park Plaza Histria, is a bustling port that delights history buffs, night owls and beach-lovers alike, catering to all of them with ease. A day spent strolling will bring you into contact with Roman ruins, glorious stretches of sand and numerous bars and restaurants that are all worth frequenting – and to top it off, the weather is fabulous for nearly the whole year.

Things to do in Pula

Leaving the views from the Hotel Park Plaza Histria will be difficult but there is much to experience in Pula, other than a well-positioned pool. You won’t be able to escape the vast amounts of history, but the amphitheatre in the centre of Pula is incredible, and it would be a missed opportunity if you don’t stand in the middle and shout!

Days at the beach can involve more than just sunbathing, thanks to a range of water sports on offer, including diving and, if you love marine life, a dolphin-watching tour will be money well spent. Family-friendly fun can be found everywhere in Pula, but if you are looking for evening excitement, you won’t be disappointed with the range of bars and restaurants. Be sure to take in the light show at the docks, too.

Fast becoming a holiday hotspot, the Istrian Riviera and Pula, in particular, combine a wealth of interest areas into one getaway, all framed beneath glorious sunshine and beside the Adriatic Sea.

Resort Summary

Everywhere you go in Pula you’ll find traces of the Romans. The arena or amphitheatre in the centre of town is spectacular and you can stand in the centre and shout your heart out to hear the wonderful acoustics. The structure is impressive and large parts of the amphitheatre are still intact today. While there is a small admission fee, this modest sum is well worth the reward of seeing and exploring the arena at close quarters. Those with disabilities will be glad to know that there is wheelchair access.

The arena is a good place to start your tour of Pula as there are many ancient buildings close to this venue. The Pula heritage walk is an excellent option if you want to learn more about the town’s fascinating history.
