Pula is the largest city in Istria, situated at the southern tip of the peninsula. Is the largest city in Istria, Croatia, at the southern tip of that peninsula, population 58,594. This rest of the region, it is known for its mild climate, tame sea, and unspoiled nature. The fall of Venice in 1797 brought in the Habsburgs as the new rulers. Pula continued to stagnate until the Austro-Hungarian monarchy chose Pula as the empire's main naval port in 1853. The construction of its naval port and the 1886 opening of its large shipyard unleashed a demographic and economic expansion that transformed Pula into a military and industrial powerhouse. The city fell into decline once again under Italian fascist rule, which lasted from 1918 to 1943, when the city was occupied by the Germans. At the end of WWII, Pula was administered by Anglo-American forces until it became part of postwar Yugoslavia in 1947. Pula's industrial base weathered the recent war relatively well and the city remains an important centre for shipbuilding, textiles, metals and glass.
