The Telegraph lists Pula among world's most desireable destinations

The Telegraph has selected the 20 best destinations to visit in 2017 and the list includes the northern Adriatic city of Pula, Pula city authorities reported on Tuesday.

After recording the best tourist season in its history last year, Pula has once against found itself in the group of the most desirable global tourist destinations, Mayor Boris Miletic said, underscoring that this was the result of efforts which the city tourism authorities invested in the promotion of Pula as a tourist destination.

"It is a place to immerse yourself in Roman and Habsburg splendours by day and night (in warmer months the amphitheatre is the venue for concerts), and to begin an exploration of Istria’s Tuscan-like gastronomical and vinicultural offerings," The Telegraph wrote.

It also highlights the Pula amphitheatre, the sixth largest in the Roman Empire and one of the best preserved in the world, and says that this year British Airways will be introducing direct flights to Pula.
