Rovinj in Istria is one of the most beautiful cities in Croatia. One who visits Rovinj is hard to forget and often returns to Rovinj. The beauties of Rovinj often leave a deep mark and their connection extends for generations.
Rovinj is located on the western side of the Istrian peninsula, extending north from the Lim Channel and south to Bale. It is adorned with a highly indented archipelago with as many as 14 islets and 6 rocks. The most famous islands are St. Andrew's (Red Island) and St. Catherine's near the old town, with hotels on both islands.
Rovinj's urban city center consists of tightly packed houses and its picturesque panorama is crowned by the church of St. Euphemia on a hill overlooking the city and the sea.
Rovinj beaches are typical of this part of the northern Adriatic, rocky promontories and pebble bays that rhythmically repeat along the 67 kilometers of the coast of Rovinj.
