    View towards north-west

    by JLBG Updated Nov 21, 2004

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From the campanile, the view towards north-west shows several small islands, mostly woody. A few houses are scattered between the trees but on the whole, the islands remain very calm and not touristy at all.

    From the campanile, northwards

    by JLBG Updated Nov 21, 2004

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View from Campanile towards the North. Trg Valdibora and the huge monument appear on the right. A little in the background, the closest parking lot (always full) to the old city. Another (half hidden) is a little further.

    There are number of Venetian styled palaces in the town of Rovinj, most of them situated on the peninsula.
    The great influance of the Venetian architecture can be noticed in the town, which had the majority of Italian population until 1953, when most of them left Istria for good.
    Some of deserted palaces are in a very bad conditions, like this one on the picture.

    Bunar

    Not so long ago, most of the houses used to have bunar (the well) for the water supplying, which were situated in the inneryards. This one is can be seen in the courtyard of the restaurant in the old core of the town, right beneath the cathedral.

    Nudist beaches

    Nudist beaches are popular here so if you are shy be careful of which island you go to - some of the smaller ones of Rovinj are exclusive for nudists - indicated by an FFK sign. No picture here - no chance!

    The location

    Just a map of Croatia so that you know where Rovinj is situated.
    It is situated on the West-coast of Kvarner Peninsula.
    Together with Pula & Porec, it's one of the most beautiful & the most visited for its medieval streets & the sea.

    There are small boats at St. Catherine harbor and other areas. Fishermen go out daily, like always for many centuries, and tend to not pay attention to all those tourists.
