    A dense network of strings is tighten cross any alley of old Rovinj, On washing days, they make garlands of linen that make washing days a celebration of colors and shapes under the hot sun, flapping happily !

    Familiar cat !

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the narrow alleys of the old town, you can get across cats awaiting for a petting hand ! Some seem to be half wild and homeless but others, such as this one, are well groomed and are just looking for some adventure outside home !

    Exploring the Old town streets

    The short and narrow streets, like this one, characterized most of the Mediterranean towns. People live different kind of life here, knowing each other, what we miss living in a huge cities of the hinterland.
    Must be very charming living in those houses, you hust know everything what is happening in the apartment on the opposite side of the street.

    Organic waste deposit

    by JLBG Updated Aug 18, 2004

    One beer later, we spotted him in another place of town, pouring the medium bins he had filled with the smaller ones into a larger bin. I guess that in the end, a petrol powered truck will have to come and collect this one. Though, that avoids any pollution in the smaller streets !

    Organic waste collection

    by JLBG Updated Aug 18, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The town of Ronvinj has a very ecological way to collect the wastes deposited in the small bins (see on the wall) scattered everywhere in the town, which makes it always perfectly clean. This man pours them into larger bins fastened on his bicycle. No pollution by a truck !

    Island from Rovinj (taken by friend:)

    Do not leave your bike at home! I had the luck to travel to Croatia from neighbouring Hungary via bike (the distance is 600km or so). In Croatia (within the cities) helmets may be legally left home, providing you with great experiences in feeling the warm air, or to have much greater chance to park fast anywhere (you will see that travelling by car may cause difficulties in that). Pula, Novigrad, Vrsar is also a must by bike, splendid jewels in mediterrania...

    Zoological gardens, the safari park, museums, sculptures, flower gardens... all this and many more attractions make the Brijuni islands a true adornment of nature. On the islands you will also find the remains of ancient Roman architecture, surrounded by centuries-old olive trees.

    by AndreasK Written Sep 7, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fazana is known for two historical naval battles. One of them is the one between the Venice and Genoa fleets in 1379 which took place in its waters. The second is the famous battle that took place near the island of Vis in 1866. The Austrian fleet under Tegetthoff's command set out from the Fazana harbour and then battled the Italian fleet at the island of Vis. Today Fazana is first of all known as a village with a nice port from where ships and boats set off to reach the famous Brijuni (or Brioni) islands.

    Street scenes in Rovinj. As in most other Istrian cities that we visited we managed to find some time to enjoy a quiet stroll through town.
