Rovinj

Rovinj, the city of romance and art, one of the most picturesque towns in the Mediterranean. Part of the Venetian Republic for over 500 years, the Old Town is perched on an elevated peninsula, surrounded by Venetian terracotta-roofed houses and crowned by the Church of St. Euphemy whose bell tower dominates the Rovinj silhouette. The cramped area of the former island dictated the appearance of the town that is characterized by high houses, narrow paved streets and small squares.

Old cobbled alleys in the Old Town invite visitors to walk around and explore colorful galleries and shops filled with local arts and crafts. The main square is surrounded with lively cafes and restaurants spreading out all the way to the charming harbor filled with sailing and fishing boats.

Visitors from all over the world spend their holiday in Rovinj because of its lovely climate, colorful history, hospitality and picture-postcard scenery – dense Mediterranean evergreen underbrush and pine woods and 22 islands and islets that together with the coastline form the largest protected area of the town’s natural heritage.
