Pula is mainly popular for 3 things:
Motovun is a small village situated on a hilltop, located an hour away from Pula.
A 50-minute roadtrip from Motovun brought us to Rovinj ... a fishing town situated on the sea. They say that, on a clear day you can see Venice from Rovinj. Some folks even do a daytrip(by boat) from here. We didn't see Venice nor do a day trip, instead we spent our entire time wandering around the beautiful old town.
