After the festival
After you’ve soaked yourself in cheap alcohol for the duration of the festival, why not take in some culture in the nearby city of Pula? Roman ruins akin to Rome’s Colloseum can be found, there’s an epic amphitheatre.. Brijuni islands on the two main pine-covered islands and thirteen smaller islets, situated just northwest of Pula, off the Istrian Coast. A former Yugoslavian leader turned the islands into a private retreat and introduced a number of subtropical species and a safari park to house animals gifted to him by world leaders – don’t be surprised to see giraffes, bears and elephants roaming around the islands, the perfect contrast to the oddities of a festival crowd.
