Roman theater in Pula

The remains of a Roman small theatre are in Pula (Croatia). The object is dated to the 1st century CE and is located on the slope under the Castle. The theatre could accommodate from 4 to 5 thousand viewers, that is the city’s population at that time.

The theatre was inside the walls of the ancient Roman colony. Interestingly, there was also a large theatre outside the city walls, which, however, has not survived to this day.

The area was divided into a stage where the acting and orchestra and stage (cavea) took place. The stage and the audience seats have been preserved to this day.

Archaeological work on this site is still not over and the object has not been fully excavated.
