Reviews: Pula Amphitheater
General description: Pula AmphitheaterThe Pula Arena is the sixth-largest surviving Roman amphitheatre in the world and is located in Pula, just outside the old city walls. It is the largest ancient building in Istria open for sightseeing during the day.
It was built in the 1st century AD during the reign of Emperor Vespasian, at the same time as the Colosseum in Rome. Gladiator fights would have taken place on the central, flat arena floor whilst spectators watched from the tiers and the gallery. It is believed that it could hold 20,000 spectators.
Today, the amphitheatre is a venue for summer performances such as the Film Festival, Opera Season, Equestrian Festival and concerts. It can seat about 5,000 guests.
