Pula is a very popular yacht charter destination that’s located in the northern region of Croatia and surrounded by the islands of St. Jerome and Kozada. It is a seafront city well-known for its Roman ruins, protected harbour, and beautiful stretches of sand. Another highlight of the town is Marina Pula, a small yet accommodating marina in the southeastern part of the city, near to the city centre and just a short drive from the airport.
The city itself is a fantastic place to explore offering an expansive history and rich culture. There are many places to visit including Roman ruins, museums, bars, restaurants, shopping outlets, and so much more. It’s also home to the sixth largest in the Roman amphitheatre in the world. Many visitors to Pula come here for the warmth and charm that it offers and is a suitable place to start your sailing adventure.
Rovinji – The jewel of Istria County
Sailing on from Pula, up the Adriatic coastline, lies another stunning location in which to include in your yacht charter – Rovinj. Along with Pula, Rovinj is one of the 9 cities which make up the Istria County and is again, one of the most well sought-after yacht charter holiday destinations. The beautiful landscapes surrounding Rovinj are what draw many holidaymakers here year after year. There are many inlets and bays scattered around the area that make a perfect setting for a yacht to explore.
The city itself is an idyllic little place, that until 1763 featured a separate island. Since merging with the mainland, the city has taken on the Italian culture and architecture to create a location rich with history and bursting with character. To preserve its natural beauty, no cars are allowed on the main streets of Rovinj. Many people choose to rent a bicycle while here to explore all the city has to offer including the Balbi Arch and the Valdibora Market. Even the harbour itself at Rovinj is a sight for sore eyes and one that makes it an ideal location for a break any time of the year.
Including these two marvellous cities in your itinerary for your yacht charter Croatia, you will not be disappointed. Whether you want to enjoy the breathtaking scenery, enjoy the buzzing culture and nightlife, or take a trip down memory lane with some of the historical sites on offer, you can be sure that there’s something for everyone to take away with them when visiting the beautiful cities of Pula and Rovinj.
