Climbing area Vintjan, Pula Croatia | Climb Istria


 /  / Vinkuran

Pula is full of Roman remains. One of them is the quarry Cave Romane in Vinkuran which is worth visiting for the exceptional scenography and the routes, the kind of which you can’t find anywhere near. It is located just a couple of minutes away from the center of Pula and from the Adriatic sea. Climbing is nice and diverse, so local climbers use the area for their local climbing gym all year round. It is a must place to visit if you are staying on holidays somewhere near.


Drive to Pula and follow signs towards Premantura. On the crossing where the road to Premantura goes left, you turn right passing Vinkuran and later left (direction Pješčana Uvala). Soon you will see the quarry on your left side. Park in front of it and in a minute of walk you will reach this fun climbing area.


Vinkuran is mostly in the shade which makes it good for climbing all year round. You can even climb in the summer. Mornings are better. After that, swimming in the Adriatic sea is a must.


The routes in natural wall are really nice to climb, mostly overhanging and desire good endurance on sharp pockets and jugs. The routes in other sectors are really something special, something completely different, from totally manufactured to unique vertical climbing.


Don’t miss to visit the beautiful and ancient city of Pula with one of the most preserved ancient Roman amphitheatres. The center is just a 5 minute drive away. You can also hop on the beach or try some DWS.
