Strikingly clear warm waters

The architecture has been heavily influenced by the Venetian times and the food is varied and tranquil. The most exciting part of the resort is the strikingly clear warm waters of the Adriatic seas which are hugely popular with divers. The historic town of Rovinj has a beautiful picturesque harbour and a maze of cobbled streets meandering through traditional stone houses. Across in the historical quarter is St Euphemia, the largest Baroque building on the Istrian Riviera and is home to a 60m bell tower offering outstanding panoramic views across the resort.

Away from the cultural sights holidays in Rovinj have to offer there is the exciting coastline. Further down from the harbour you can explore many little coves and secluded hot spots. The pebble beaches mean the sea is sands free and the clarity of the water makes for stunning snorkelling and diving perfect for discovering the marine life. For fun on top of the water there are plenty of sports available and plenty of sailing and fishing opportunities.
