Europe tour Interail 2006 : Pula, bath in the adriatic sea

En français
We took our train to Pula at 7.00 am and arrived at the end of the morning. Pula is the largest city in Istria, a region of Croatia which was known by the Romans as the Terra Magica. It's name comes from the Histri an Illyrian tribe that the Romans as pirates. There are several caves near Pula, Lim fjord, Šandalja and Roumald's with archaeological remains from stone age, we didn't have a chance to visit them so we will have to go back in the future.
The first thing we saw in the city was the Pula amphitheater that looks a bit like the Colosseo. We really wanted to go to the sea so I used my Croatian to get direction. That was kinda fun, I just don't speak Croatian so I had trouble understand the answers. We walk to the sea, that was pretty far and took a bath there. Sebastian got stuck by urchin, he probably stepped on them. We started to go back and were almost sure to be late for the train but fortunately the hitch-hacking worked and an someone from Lugano took us back to the city center. We have the time to enjoy ourselves and have a drink before taking the next trains.
