Rovinj was built on an island close to the coast, which was connected with the mainland in 1763 by filling in the channel.
Since then it undertook the transformation from the small fishing village to the tobacco industry capital of Croatia, to the postcard city that is traveller resort. So, today its people are still proud of this long tradition and "fight" for the.head of "healthy town".The rest is nature's work. The entire coastline, with its twenty-two islands is an area of protected natural heritage. It is hard not to feel the charm of the city while walking through its narrow medieval streets, some of which are leading to the plato in front of St. Euphemia’s church, from where you have an incredible view at the beauties surrounding the peninsula.Rovinj is great for cultural, active or a relaxing vacation, with a wide offer for everyone.
