Rovinj Croatia

Located on the shores of the Adriatic Sea, Rovinj is one of Croatia’s coastal gems. The charming city offers plenty for visitors looking for more than a beach too, such as historic monuments, cobbled streets and a picturesque waterfront.

History and culture buffs will find much to enjoy about Rovinj. Housed in a 17th-century baroque palace, the Rovinj City Museum displays Croatian art from the 16th century to the present. For an insight into the region’s history, check out the Rovinj Heritage Museum. Built from 1725 to 1736, the baroque St Euphemia’s Church dominates Rovinj from its hilltop location in the middle of the old town. Its bell tower is a major highlight, while inside you’ll discover notable artworks and ceiling frescoes.

There are plenty of relaxing things to see and do in Rovinj. Wander down to the waterfront and take in the picturesque scenes of boats swaying lazily on the water and Sveta Katarina, an island just off the coast. Afterwards, browse the Rovinj Market for fresh produce and artisan crafts, then head for Grisia, a cobbled street lined with galleries and boutique stores.
