Abstract

Pula is the biggest city of Istria county, and also its economical centre. After the World War II, along with navy and industry, tourism is getting expanding more and more. Most important factors of tourism expansion are geographical position of the city, the mild Mediterranean climate, preserved natural environment, good transport links, and rich cultural and monumental heritage. The rich heritage is the result of continuos life in the city area, where have exchanged a variety of cultures and nations. The most important heritage is preserved from the period under the rule of the Roman Empire and the Austria-Hungary Empire, and slightly less from the medieval period. The main theme and goal of this thesis was to research how heritage is touristicly valorizated today, and what are opportunities for its improvement in order to achieve more tourist traffic and further development of cultural tourism in the city. The analise found that, while Antique heritage is mostly well touristic valorizated, valorization of Austro-Hungarian heritage, especially fortification system, has only just started, despite its big potencial. Promoting cultural tourism, tourist season could be extended to the whole year, and also it would singled out Pula from neighbouring touristic destinations, whom are one of the cause of touristic stagnation of the city.
