Discover the magic of Rovinj

Onderwerpen in dit artikel

Rovinj is one of the most photographed cities in Croatia, especially known for its amazing sunsets. From the air it looks like a fairy-tale village suspended on a pillow of bright blue sea. Its Old Town is a protected monument and one of Istria’s most visited sites. The historic center is a tangle of steep pedestrian streets that are paved with sea-salt-polished cobblestones and marked with signs in Italian and Croatian. These narrow, winding streets are lined with galleries, quaint shops, and amazing restaurants. Most streets lead to the town’s highest point, where St. Euphemia Church and its campanile dominate the skyline. Add to that Rovinj’s strong Mediterranean personality, which includes a thriving fleet of small fishing boats, a smattering of Venetian-style piazzas, numerous restaurants, cafés, and atmospheric rock walls set next to pounding waves, and you have a town that’s both vibrant and historical.
