Rovinj

Plan your Travels to Rovinj

The Old Town of Rovinj with sea-fronted, colorful facades, was once an island. When the town was under Venetian rule in 1763, the island was connected to the mainland. The city had seven gates, three of which have been preserved to this day. The largest monument in the city, the Church of St. Euphemia, is a Venetian Baroque building open to visitors.

Rovinj is a stunning little city in Croatia filling every inch of a peninsula bordered on three sides by the Adriatic Sea. The core of the old town is mostly Venetian and built with pale limestone that glows in the sun, containing exciting fragments from every stage of its turbulent history.

On a visit you can tour the maze of streets before a meal beneath a parasol at the picturesque working port. Beyond Rovinj you can seek out ancient ruins, visit unfrequented beaches and breathtaking natural spaces like the 10 kilometre-long Lim Fjord.

St. Euphemia Cathedral

The square campanile of this baroque church dominate Rovinj’s skyline and closely resembles St. Mark’s in Venice. So it’s no surprise that the 17th-century St. Euphemia was built by the Venetians, who were in control of Rovinj throughout this period.

Rovinj Port

The square campanile of this baroque church dominate Rovinj’s skyline and closely resembles St. Mark’s in Venice. So it’s no surprise that the 17th-century St. Euphemia was built by the Venetians, who were in control of Rovinj throughout this period.

Balbi’s Arch

Leading to Grisla Street away from the main square is this imposing arch from the late 1670s, and named after Daniel Balbi who was the mayor at the time.The arch replaced an old town gate and bears the classic Venetian hallmark of the Lion of St. Mark. Curiously there are also two stone heads, one on either side of the arch.
