Pula Communal Palace, Pula

Pula Communal Palace, Pula (must see)

The Communal Palace is situated at the northern end of the main square of the old part of the City of Pula, called the Forum Square. The spot occupied by the Palace has been used for the public buildings since the Roman times, when the place was used as a part of the triade of Roman temples, of which today only Temple of Augustus remains. As the city prospered, there was a need to construct a dedicated place which would serve as a city hall, so the construction of the new city hall, at the site of the Temple of Diana, was begun in the end of 13th century, and the new city hall was finished in 1296.

The building was constructed in gothic style with the material of the old Roman temples and other building on the site, using walls of this buildings when possible. Even today, the whole northern part of the Themple of Daina is clearly visible at the back side of the Communal Palace. Since the construction, the Communal Palace has seen numerous reconstructions. At the end of 15th century the building was reconstructed in renaissance style and during 17th century, the building was again reconstructed, now in baroque style. The present state of building is due to several reconstructions made during 19th and 20th century, the last of which was finished in 1988.
