Rovinj
Rovinj is an old Croatian walled town built on small peninsula, surrounded by sea with its historic centre modelled on Venice. Rovinj is very popular among visitors and travellers to Croatia and is one of the top Croatian tourist destinations.
Rovinj used to be Istrian fishing port , and once was also the principal town of the Istrian peninsula. Nowadays, it's maze of narrow streets leads to a harbour full of fishing boats as well as sailing boats and yachts. As a town, Rovinj was first mentioned in the 7th century, as Ruvignio-Ruigno.
Rovinj is a classic model of a town of the Mediterranean form. Rovinj is one of the most developed seaside resorts in Croatia, offering a whole range of visitor opportunities in a picturesque ambience of the ancient town, surrounded by dense pine forests.
On the seaside, the town is protected by a high rocky shore and house walls built on cliffs, while the mainland side is protected by solid walls. The town is dominated by the baroque St. Euphemia’s Church, its 60-meter tower providing a view of grey and red rooftops and chimneys, streets and squares, the port and pier with ships and boats, and the marina harboring yachts.
This unique old town core, the 67-kilometer shoreline, 2,289 ha of protected green surfaces and improved park forests, 16 islands, islets and reefs, make this town unique. Built upon a rich fishermen’s tradition, it has become distinctive for its unique boat called batana and its songs bitinada. Its beauty was particularly appreciated by artists who have painted the most beautiful motifs here and exhibited them on Grisia, the street of artists.
