Rovinj

Part of the Venetian Republic for over 500 years, the Old Town is perched on an elevated peninsula, surrounded by Venetian terracotta-roofed houses and crowned by the Church of St. Euphemy from the 18th century whose bell tower dominates the Rovinj silhouette. The cramped area of the former island dictated the appearance of the town that is characterized by high houses, narrow paved streets and small squares.

Due to Rovinj’s mild climate, amount of sunny days, warm sea, attractive scenery, as well as historical monuments and old town, it is a popular meeting place for all kinds of artists – painters, writers and actors – throughout the whole year.  This is place providing endless options – walks in wonderful nature, sport and recreation activities, sailing, diving, climbing, biking, discovering hidden beauties, cultural antiques, archeological sites and culinary specialties, all combined with accommodation in high-quality hotels, tourist resorts and camps, private accommodation, wellness delights, business conferences and sporting activities.
