If a driver turns from the Istrian Y-road towards Pula, the administrative capital of Red Istria and economic centre of the whole Istrian peninsula, city with the world’s fourth largest amphitheatre, Imperial shipyard and the former federal state’s top-secret naval caves, the driver will first see the consumer hangars on the “brajda” – the border between the city and the waste land, and further on the anachronistic megaliths of another philosophy of life, five-storey buildings from the 1960-is.
