  1. Wow. As an Ancient History student, I loved this post. I never knew that Pula had so much of antiquity to offer. When I visited Split last year, I loved exploring Diocletian’s Palace and the ancient tunnels underneath.

    I’ve given you a follow as I also write a travel blog; there you’ll even find a post that I wrote on Diocletian’s Palace. Cheers for a great post.
