After the end of Roman Empire, Ostrogoths devastated Istria and consequently Pula. Slavs inhabited the destroyed land, mostly in the fertile countryside. In the history flow, Pula often changed its landlords, from Venetians, across Napolean to Habsburg, each one leaving his mark on the city life. Being principal Austro-Hungarian port, after the WWI Pula became Italian territory throughout the end of WWII when Istria was practically endowed in geopolitical negotiation to Croatia (Yugoslavia at the time). The Irish writer James Joyce lived in Pula with his wife teaching languages to the Austro-Hungarian naval officers. Under the strong Italian influence, Pula today is officially bilingual.
The old heart of the city is a small intricate labyrinth of noisy streets and alleys. In the summer time, the city never dies, and as the temperature goes down, the main streets become a real facing challenge of navigating through the crowds of tourists, unheld, a discarnate iridescence limply suspended in the hot summer breeze.
