Park Forest Šijana is located in the northeastern part of Pula, only 2 kilometers from the city center. At the beginning of the last century, it was called Kaiserwald (Imperial Forest), when it served as a rest area and recreation grounds for the Austro-Hungarian army and gentry. Today, it is a place of fun, recreation and rest, very popular for excursionists since it can be easily reached by local transport.
