Discover Rovinj – Istria’s pearl

Rovinj is a star attraction of coastal Istria. Although it can be crowded with tourists during the summer, the town still remains one of the last Mediterranean fishing ports. Wooded hills and low-rise hotels surround the old town, which is surrounded with cobbled streets and piazzas.

 

Once you berth here, you’ll realize you don’t need to be a skilled photographer to make the most beautiful photos in Rovinj’s old town. It’s just the perfect scene. There are countless passages to the sea, vivid small shops, unique galleries and Gothic and Renaissance era.

 

All this and more is a reason the city was proclaimed a monument of culture.

Rovinj is full of beaches, from one of the most luxurious beaches on this side of the Adriatic sea, over beaches located in the centre of the town, camping beaches and succluded beaches and embayments nearby. Some of the country’s best beaches for disabled people are also located in Rovinj.

 

Rovinj is also famous for its UNESCO Protected Batana boats. In ports of this area, protected from the winds, numerous batanas are berthed even today.

 

This is a very good wine region, and the restaurants in the town offer delicious Mediterranean food. We recommend Monte, Puntulina and Wine Wault.

Fun fact: Rovinj used to be an island.     

 

Dock yourself in Rovinj and enjoy!
