URBAN MEETINGS

COMPARISON WITH THE REGION

Pula is a city of intoxicating flavours, scents and multiple images. Only when you experience it, it becomes clear why it’s also a great meetings destination. Pula as a regional centre of Istria is in terms of congress tourism currently less developed than some tourist destinations in Istria. The role of the regional congress centre took Rovinj with intensive investment, partly Poreč and cities of NW Istria. Current investments of company Arenaturist incite a very high degree of optimism since the city acquired a high-quality infrastructure. Along with the urban culture of the city and the number of higher education institutions, the potential for congress tourism in Istria is among the largest.
