Beautiful sea, preserved nature and interesting history intertwined with local legends. Fishing culture exudes the city we come from. Get to know the city of Rovinj!
Once an important marital and fisherman harbour, today a popular tourist centre, Rovinj is located on the Istrian coast for over two millennia. Because of its excellent Mediterranean climate, which gives warm summers and mild winters to its residents, this town is a great destination, no matter the time of the year.
Even though first mentioned in „Cosmographia", from which we can conclude that Rovinj was founded between 3rd and 5th century AD, numerous archaeological findings confirm population of the area even in prehistoric times. The city has been built around the now church of St. Euphemia, and has successfully survived against Slavs, Neretvans and Saracens until the 10th century.
Enjoy medieval Venetian architecture, which permeates the city centre and blends in with the maritime atmosphere that pervades the city. If you simply want to get away from the city atmosphere, the Zlatni rt forest park, in the old quarry, is an ideal place to relax and soak up nature. On the other hand, if the endless blue of the sea calls you, visit the numerous islands in the Rovinj archipelago.
