Dear friends, Pula Superiorvm , the largest Istrian festival of antiquity opens its doors on the 12th. Of June 2014 A.D. . We have been hard at work and fully commited to creating another great festival.  We will inform you over the coming weeks  of what is planned for the coming 13th Days of Antiquity. 

During the 3 days of the festival, visitors will be introduce in a rather interesting and fun way to a top-class program . This year, get ready for spectacular gladiators, legionnaires, antiquity buffet, antiquity dances, children's games, street performers , musical programs and many activities that accompany the inevitable innovation and originality of the festival . For starters, you can remind yourself what the festival was like last year by visiting our photo gallery where you can see how Andreas Chancellor carefully and meticulously recorded the event.

With great entertainment and a relaxed, casual atmosphere Superiorvm Pula - Days of Antiquity again brings us interesting days also marking the opening of the summer season in the city .

All who have experienced the Pula Superiorvm festival's atmosphere at least once, know that during the three days, we will be presenting the cultural and entertaining project that preserves and nurtures the cultural heritage of the town of Pula, promoting the development of the tourist season the county of Istria.

And don't worry, in order that everything goes according to the satisfaction of the citizens and visitors, an already well-established team will take care of this year's Days of Antiquity in order to offer  another unforgettable event for all to remember.

Ensure a successful start by marking your calendar with the festival dates „12th to 14th June 2014“ and hang out with us at our website and facebook pageand keep up-to-date with new and fresh info.

Given that the festival Pula Superiorvm every year attracts many tourists with rich cultural and entertainment programs, this year too, the Days of Antiquity have the full support of the Tourist Board of the City of Pula. An exhibition will be held at the Tourist Board, as part of the exhibition part of the festival.  The exhibition of photographs is by local Pula authors, who for twelve years in a row have tirelessly recorded our events – to whom we are, of course, immensely grateful, as a picture speaks a thousand words.

The local photographers are Marina Puh, Snježana Bratanović, Manuel Angelini, Andreas Kancelar i Goran Šebelić. The theme of the exhibition  is the Pula Superiorvm festival.  The 'Retrospective by Pula photographers' will display the most interesting events, people, shows, concerts, visitors, legionnaires, gladiators and attractive fights, costumes and other characteristic details of recently past Days of Antiquity.

Antique Pietas Iulia was renowned in old theaters in which travelling troupes and performers would regularly perform.  Contemporary Pula as well has it's very own entertainment troupes, even if they are amateurs.  It is exactly to these kind of budding artists that Pulasuperiorvm gives a chance to.  This year will be the third year in a row that the troupe of amateur artists Go-Go Wrighters will be performing.

This group of young enthusiasts is a part of the Sinestezija Association, who not only act but write their very own scripts.  Their performances are a mix of cabaret and satirical theater.  There is no lack of ideas with these creative youngsters, nor do they lack courage in their writing.  We are sure that you will witness this for yourselves during the this year's Days of Antiquity.  They regularly portray the absurdities of contemporary life in their performances, but for the 12th annual Pulasuperiorvm festival they have chosen an antiquity theme that they will interpret in an original and comical fashion.
