Pula is world famous for its Roman Amphitheater (Arena) dating from the 1st-2nd cc. that dominates the area above the city port. It is the sixth in size preserved amphitheater in the world, which during the Roman Empire could seat 26,000 spectators. The city abounds in classical monuments; various monuments from the Roman period are exhibited in the park of the Archaeological Museum.
On the hill behind the Museum are the remains of a Roman theater. On the inner side of the main City Gate is the Arch of the Sergii, whereas outside the Gate lies the large Roman necropolis mentioned even in Dante's Inferno. On the hill above the old part of the city is the Kastel (1631) which today houses the Historical Museum of Istria.
