Rovinj, Croatia - holiday information

Rovinj Croatia – visitor information

Rovinj is according to many one of the most beautiful cities of the Istrian peninsula. This mystical and romantic city was mentioned for the first time in the 5th century. Located on the north of Istria under a fjord, Rovinj began to develop on the island that was later connected to the mainland. A baroque church of St. Euphemia dominates the highest part of the island, while other buildings surround it, and seem to protect the church in a magical labyrinth of narrow streets and tall houses. Fishing has been and remains an important industry, and the symbol of this is definitely "batana", wooden boats used by local fishermen. Beauty of this area has been recognized by artists, who depicted their vision onto canvas, and offered their works in Grisija Street, today known as a street of artists, who have become an indispensable part of the town.
The rich history of Rovinj is seen at every step, and the confined space, which resulted in this type of construction, and the beauty of the same will turn you into a romantic mood. This charming „stone beauty” is surrounded by 16 islands and islets whose natural grace is additionally stunning. Tourist offer is diverse and of high quality so everyone can easily find suitable accommodation. A range of hotels on offer is followed by a good offer in private accommodation units, as well as camping options. Diverse and numerous beaches have the Blue Flag, while many sports and catering facilities enrich the offer. The diverse cuisine can be sampled in local restaurants and taverns, and night entertainment can satisfy appetites of all ages. We definitely recommend the cocktail bar "Valentino" from where you can witness the romantic sunsets. Guests who are seriously involved in sports and recreation have numerous parks and forests at their disposal as well as the cove Limska Draga which was also declared a special reserve in the sea, Forest Park Zlatni rt, Palud marsh islands and Dvije Sestrice islands that are also an ornithological reserve. Every year the City of Rovinj organizes several sailing regattas, so it is increasingly being recognized as a sailing city. Coastal and inland Istria offers additional attractions and a rich historical heritage, out of which you must visit the settlement of Bale, if you wish to discover the beauty of the hinterland area.
