Rovinj

The charming medieval fishing port of Rovinj competes with Dubrovnik, as Croatia’s most photographed town. Rovinj was originally built on an island but has now been connected to the mainland. Take a stroll through the postcard-pretty cobbled streets and admire the colorful facades of the local buildings. Visit the hilltop church of St Euphemia to view the lofty steeple that dominates the skyline, and the pebble beaches of Lone Bay. Tucked along the narrow passages and alleyways there are many interesting shops, cafes, bars and restaurants that are well worth exploring. Enjoy a traditional local meal whilst admiring the exquisite views. This area is irresistibly photogenic.

Get lost in the old town with the colourful, medieval streets bursting with Venetian houses, squeezed one to another and right by the water’s edge. Explore the large number of excellent art galleries that are situated along the steep and narrow pedestrian streets and visit the vibrant harbour with a large collection of small pleasure and fishing boats. The beauty of Rovinj is inspiring and full of romance and intrigue.
