#Post office #Pula #1932
Constructed of local stone, clad in marble, granite and porphyry, plus the semi-circular construction for the entrance and the staircase, which appears to be pulled out from the rest of the building mass. This building in Pula draws attention.
The window frames made of aluminum and the large windows contrast with the stone facades. Inside the building, the round staircase and its red colour are impressive. It makes this building look inside more than a theatre or hotel than a post office. The counters are cladded with marble and the chandeliers are made of Murano glass.
An extension was added to the post office along Flaciusova and Leharova streets. The style is a mix of Neo Art Deco and Brutalism and may date from the 1980s.
The main post office in Pula was built between 1932 and 1935. It is a part of Pula's Italian history of the 1930s. Originally decorated with Italian inscriptions, these were replaced by Croatian letters after 1947, as Pula became a part of Yugoslavia. In 2006 the building became part in the list of protected monuments.
