Rovinj

The town of Rovinj in Croatia is located on the western coast of Istria and, due to its unique beauty and a characteristic atmosphere, is known as one of the “most photogenic” Mediterranean towns. A former fishing village and today’s popular tourist destination, Rovinj delights with its history and cultural heritage.

Rovinj, Croatia is the town of artists and people with free spirits, while the protected natural heritage and favourable climate make it one of the most desirable places to live in Istria. As it is the case with most Istrian towns, Rovinj started to develop during the age of the Roman Empire, and has gone through a series of turbulent periods during the past centuries, which is witnessed by many forts, walls and towers, as well as many monuments from the period of the Venetian power. The town has an original charm which is hard to find nowadays. Even though this is a top quality tourist destination, the atmosphere of an old fishing town is felt at every step and wins the guests over during their walk on stone streets that are a hundred years old. The Old Town stands out with many sights and narrow streets in which artists exhibit their works. The environmental importance of the destination is expressed on protected islands of the Rovinj archipelago and in the clean sea that is abundant in fish. Going to the open sea and enjoying sport fishing is a new and unforgettable experience for all sea lovers. The gastronomic offer best reflects what Istrian cuisine can offer, from the traditional victuals to top quality wines. A wide selection of contents guarantees that everyone can find something for themselves. Accommodation in Rovinj is available in some of the numerous hotels and apartments that offer high comfort standards. Also, the nearby campsites with a developed activity offer are also increasingly popular. Visit the town of Rovinj in Croatia and experience the original Istria!
