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. The inside has a traditional Istrian stone architecture of an old house with a fireplace in the middle. We sat on the terrace which provides lots of shade to catch some summer breeze. 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. Tips: one of their specialties is roasted lamb made on fire under a baking lid. MORE ISTRIAGO COLLECTIONS

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

CATCHING SQUID FROM SHORE IN PULA

ISTRIADUCTION From October to March | No Working time | Free (Licence)   Some people still do not believe that they can catch squid from the shore. To begin, we came to the shore before sunset to prepare for the period when squid is active. We made a selection of our huge range of squid jig. From the range of colors, we chose the red jig in the hope that it will be a winning jig. Generally, jigs start at 2.2 and go to 4.0. You can buy smaller and much larger sizes but for targeting squids these sizes are best for us and that’s what you will find at the local tackle store. These numbers reflect length not weight, however, you can use common sense and understand that a 4.0 jig will sink faster than a 2.5. So choose jigs based on the water depth you’re fishing. We used a rod, a reel, squid jig and after a few launches here is our first Adriatic squid. After we had somehow drawn to the shore and taken off the jig, we repeated the same procedure. The domestic squid is really a truly delicious morsel and
