Pula Enters Guinness Book of Records

arenaThe Croatian city of Pula, which is the largest city in the Istria County, has entered the Guinness Book of Records this weekend…

At the end of the 3-day Visualia Festival last night, more than 4,000 people gathered to light up the city’s famous Arena amphitheatre with torches for a millennium photo taken by photographer Duško Marušić – Čiči. It is the first time such a photo was taken at Pula’s famous Roman amphitheatre. To enter the Guinness Book of Records a minimum of 3,777 people needed to gather at the Arena, but that number was comfortably passed.

Visualia Festival 2015 was held at various locations in the very heart of Pula. Keeping up with the latest trends in audiovisual art, the Festival brought to Pula new lighting installations, interactive performances and 3D video mapping. (photo credit  / M. ANGELINI)
