The historic Church of St. Mary and St. Peregrin is located right in the middle of Pula's centre. The area around the church is pedestrianised but there is plenty of parking nearby, and it's well worth a visit. Only a few meters from the sea, this lovely old building is home to lots of beautiful paintings and dates all the way back to 1651. It's right next to the main square too, for a spot of souvenir shopping.

The clear blue waters around the town are ideal for diving, with vast numbers of colourful fish as well as lobsters and eels that live amongst the pretty coral. You can even dive in an old shipwreck, and all of the guides are highly educated for an extra-safe diving experience.
