Pula at Istria

The town was known to early Greek voyagers, since its founding was attributed to the Colchis. It was mentioned in the mythological story of Jason and Medea, who had stolen the golden fleece. The Colchis, who had chased Jason into the northern Adriatic, were unable to catch him and ended up settling in the region where the Illyric tribe lived. They called the place Polai, signifying “city of refuge”. Greek pottery and a part of a statue of Apollo have been found, attesting to the presence of the Greek culture.

After the fall of the Western Roman Empire, the city and region were destroyed by the Ostrogoths. Their rule ended about 60 years later, when Pula came under the rule of the Exarchate of Ravenna (540-751). During this period Pula prospered and became the major port of the Byzantine fleet. The cathedral and the Saint Mary Formosa chapel date from this period.

The Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas with its Ravenna-style polygonal apse, originally dates from the 6th century, but was partially rebuilt in the 10th century. In 1583 it was assigned to the Orthodox community of Pula, mainly Greek immigrants from Cyprus and Nauplion. The church owns several icons from the 15th and the 16th century and an iconostasis from the Greek artists Tomios Batos from the 18th century.

Χάρη στις εφαρμογές της τεχνολογίας της επικοινωνίας, που φέρνουν επιλογές στο πεδίο του προσιτού από άποψη οργάνωσης, η βδομάδα που έρχεται είναι βδομάδα διακοπών στην Pula της Ίστριας. Η επιλογή έγινε σχεδόν τυχαία, δηλαδή ήταν ένας συνδυασμός γεωγραφίας, χρόνου και τιμών. Όλα (αεροπορικά εισιτήρια, δωμάτιο, αυτοκίνητο, χρήσιμές πληροφορίες) διευθετήθηκαν μέσω δικτύου, και μ ένα μικρό βιβλιαράκι ταξιδιωτικό οδηγό. (Μάλλιασε η γλώσσα μου να λέω στον Ανδρόνικο πόσο σημαντικό είναι για τη δουλειά του να οργανώσει την παρουσία της Κopana resort στο δίκτυο. Παρεμπιπτόντως: τώρα είναι λίγο αργά Ανδρόνικε για να μιλήσουμε για το «πασχαλινό σου πακέτο»).
