Pula, CroatiaThe Romans put Pula on the map when they arrived in 177 BC. The well preserved amphitheatre demonstrates the Roman's ability to construct large public spaces and make them last. The amphitheatre is the sixth largest in the world and can hold 22,000 people. The amphitheatre was built in the 1BC, but the population of Pula at the time was only around 5,000. No one has ever explained why such a large amphitheatre was built for such a small population.
