Rovinj

Uredi podatke
 

Often compared to Saint Tropez, Rovinj is a picturesque town of exceptional beauty bordered by pine-lined beaches, scored with cobbled alleyways and vibrant with colourful galleries and lively pavement cafes. Perhaps the most Italian-influenced town in all of Croatia, red-roofed Venetian houses cluster around the old town square, rolling down to a startlingly pretty harbour.

The dramatic coastline and pine-clad landscape draped in cypress and olive groves provides plentiful options for recreation-seekers. Hiking, biking and climbing through lush forests are just some of the land-side activities; sea kayaking, diving and sailing provide exhilarating water-based opportunities. But Rovinj is also very much about relaxing. By daytime, have the old town to yourself as locals shade behind faded green and blue shutters. When the sun sets the narrow streets come alive with families strolling hand in hand or sat at pavement cafes and characteristic taverns.

In summer barely a day goes by without the sounds of a concert drifting past the pale stone walls. ‘Rovinj’s Night’ at the end of August is undoubtedly the highlight of the street party calendar. For three days against a background of music and dance the whole town turns out to wine and dine on fresh seafood, white truffles and other local delicacies. On the final night, the sky explodes in a spectacular firework display, one of the biggest on the Adriatic and a fitting tribute to one of Croatia’s most charmed towns.
