IPTC INFO
CaptionRovinj coast and the coastal area is a unique natural environment because there are 2289 ha of protected green areas 14 islands islets and 6 cliffs. The coastline with many beaches is 67 km long. --- --- --- Due to its favourable and healthy climate and interesting history Istria has been attractive to the clientele from the continental parts of Europe ever since the beginning of modern tourism. After 1844 when the Austrian Lloyd established permanent tourist line Trieste-Rijeka ships regularly sailed to Piran Novigrad Poreč Rovinj and Pula. The construction of the railway line Divača-Pula with the branch line Kanfanar-Rovinj 1876 even more accelerated the development of Rovinj tourism although then it was just about individual visits instead of organized arrivals. The year 1888 marks the official beginning of Rovinj tourism when the health resort Maria Theresia Seehospiz provided for the treatment of poor children suffering from scrofulosis and rickets opened its doors. This health resort was mostly visited by the children from the Austro-Hungarian Empire but also from Germany Russia and other countries. The first meteorological measurements of air temperature started as part of this health resort which were compared with the Viennese values. In 1890 Knight Georg Hütterott an entrepreneur from Trieste enchanted by the Rovinj archipelago bought four islands in its southern part St. Andrew Maškin Šturag and St. John and in the coming years started to buy private properties south of the town in the area of Punta Corrente Montauro Škarabe Monvi and Monte Mulini. _______________________ Turistička zajednica grada Rovinja Rovigno Pina Budicina 12 52210 Rovinj Tel.: ++385/52/811-566 Tel.: ++385/52/813-469 Fax: ++385/52/816-007 tzgrovinj@tzgrovinj.hr __________________________ flickr.com/photos/robertotaddeo/13305420423
