IPTC INFO
CaptionRovinj Rovigno in Italian is coastal Istria’s star attraction. While it can get overrun with tourists in summer and residents have developed a sharp eye for maximising profits by upgrading hotels and restaurants to four-star status it remains one of the last true Mediterranean fishing ports. Fishers haul their catch into the harbour in the early morning followed by a horde of squawking gulls and mend their nets before lunch. Prayers for a good catch are sent forth at the massive Church of St Euphemia the 60m-high tower of which punctuates the peninsula. Wooded hills and low-rise hotels surround the old town which is webbed with steep cobbled streets and piazzas. The 14 green islands of the Rovinj archipelago make for a pleasant afternoon away; the most popular islands are Sveta Katarina and Crveni Otok Red Island also known as Sveti Andrija. The old town is contained within an egg-shaped peninsula. About 1.5km south is the Punta Corrente Forest Park and the wooded cape of Zlatni Rt Golden Cape with its age-old oak and pine trees and several large hotels. There are two harbours: the northern open harbour and the small protected harbour to the south.
