TAVERN TAJ IN THE CITY OF PULA

ISTRIADUCTION  All Year | Working time: 11-01h | Free Entrance Located in the suburbs of Pula tavern „Taj“ offers a warm domestic ambient on a nice location, not far from city center.

They serve great prosciutto, Istrian cheese and fabulous olive oil as an appetizer. This time as the main course we wanted something different so we ordered a traditional Istrian meal called „maneštra“ a vegetable stew made with spring corn. And it was delicious. Except that „Taj“ has a verity of fish dishes and great squid, locally called „calamari“. Staff is really friendly and the ambient is warm and nice.

CATCHING “STRIJELKA” – BLUEFISH ON THE SOUTHWEST COAST OF FAŽANA

ISTRIADUCTION August - September | No Working time | Fishing Licence Along the southwestern coast, you can go hunting for bluefish. These active fish love the surface bait, so you need a rod, active hand and can be started. First of all you need to make sure that you have the strong lines because of sharp teeth that cut nylon. The resolution is the wire or a very thick nylon. We picked up the location and set off with our equipment on our adventure and fishing stunts. Along with the classic equipment we also took old shoes to go in the water because of the very shallow water. After a few simulations of fish with our rod, we could see the bluefish tracking and after a few minutes, there goes the action. First of all, we saw the other fish coming out of the water because the fish was followed by the bluefish. And after a couple of seconds kick on our rod and it is time for an action. It is necessary to make sure that the bluefish remain on the hook and it is not easy. After a few minutes of

ISTRIADUCTION June - September | Working time: 20h | Pay per entrance Spectacvla Antiqva is the name of the project that takes place in Pula’s amphitheater once a week. In the evening hours, we have been in the Arena to see gladiator fights. We had a privilege to see ancient Roman soldiers,  citizens, clothing, and hairstyles. First, we made a couple of photos of the old Roman soldier at the entrance of Arena then we proceed to the stone seat :).  In the beginning, the narrator explains everything about the program and gladiators on English and it is easy to catch all the facts. After showing old Roman customs, habits, for example, selling women, the show continues with gladiators. The gladiators were usually criminals, war prisoners and slaves trained for fights and we have enjoyed gladiator fights with real weapons. At the end of the fight, the crowd can decide if the gladiator is going to be killed or get mercy. The last decision is on the emperor and he will decide the end of the fight with thumbs up or down. The last shouts will be of Mitte! (Let him go!) or Iugula! (Kill him!) it was fun. It was very interesting after the show because
