Pula, Istria

















































Contact us







In the extreme south of Istria, 11 km SE of Pula, the once fishermen's village of Medulin is one of the most famous tourist resorts of the peninsula, a natural oasis of peace and silence while offering all the opportunities of a very dynamic holiday.


The Mediterranean climate of the Medulin Bay makes it one of the favourite training centres for football players and other athletes in all seasons.


Tourism started here more than a century ago and has rapidly increased to the present accommodation capacity of 17.000 guests.


Medulin lies on the regional road Pula-Pomer-Medulin-Liznjan so it can easily be reached  by car from Trieste and Pula has its own airport.


In the Medulin Bay is possible to experience a low, sandy and well-indented coast, an archipelago with ten islets and the coastal phenomenon known in Croatian as "primosten" and "tombolo" in Italian.


Six grass football fields, track and field facilities,  tennis, miniature golf, bowling, boccia, beach volley, surfing, yachting, horseback riding, diving, water skiing, boats, beach canoes, pedal boats, water scooters, bicycles and motorbikes on rent: yes, Medulin is indeed sports but also disco, live music, dance, high quality concerts, fish, meat and vegetarian restaurants.


With its depth of max 2.5 m the port of Medulin is suitable only for smaller vessels and the bay is protected.


The Izula Peninsula features the ruins of a Roman country villa and antique graves and prehistoric stone fortifications can be seen on the hill Vrcevan and Cape or Punta Kasteja.


The nearby town of Pula preserves an almost intact Roman amphitheatre, in fact the sixth largest in the world and certainly one of the most beautiful.


Istrian history goes back 3.000 years and many have been ruling this land: the Illyrian-Venetian Histri, the ancient Romans, the Goths, the Lombards, the Holy Roman Empire, the Republic of Venice,  Napoleon's Empire, the  Austrian Empire, the Italian Kingdom of Mussolini, Hitler's Germany and Tito's Yugoslavia...


After the break-up of the Yugoslavian Federation in 1991 Istria lies now in three countries: Croatia, Slovenia and Italy.
