The lighting giants are Pula's brand new attraction.
They are in fact cranes at Uljanik shipyard which light up every night, on the hour and for 15 minutes.
You can marvel at them once evening falls and until 10 pm (or midnight in summer).
There are no fewer than 16,000 colour variations illuminating these metal structures.
The amphitheatre in Pula is the only remaining Roman amphitheatre to have four fully preserved side towers. Built in 27 BC, it is one of the six largest Roman arenas still existing in the world. The amphitheatre ceased to be used in the 5th century when the emperor Honorius banned gladiator fights. The local population then plundered it of its stones before this became forbidden in the thirteenth century. In 1932, Pula's amphitheatre was adapted for theatre, military ceremonies and public meetings.
