    Slippery streets.

    The streets in the old part of Rovinj are steep and also very slippery, so be careful and don´t walk too fast when you are making your way to the top of the town or back doan again for that matter.
    This is old streets that has been polished by the many feet that has walked over them the past few centuries and you don´t want to end up in hospital when you are suppose to be on holiday.

    Men beware

    Pastrik even better looking waiters than me

    This restaurant oh where can I start - great atmosphere, busy every night, good service and usually quick and cheaper than most but I have to warn you that this place has the best looking group of men serving tables. A beauty of males is the most appropriate collective noun I feel. Women folk just look in awe and menfolk like me look insignificant and looking for the nearest plastic surgeon. Take your lady there at your peril. Location close to the harbour crossing to Red Island, tables on the terrace overlook the harbour. I can just imagine the interview for this job and how I'd be rejected - the male ego cannot take it :(

    Laundry Day

    by leecouk12324 Written Sep 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although during the week i often saw laundry hanging to dry - common site in old town - there seemed to be a big increase in laundry day on Thursday - ie - this looks like official laundry day.
    I read somewhere that you have to beware of a bucket of dirty water flying out from upstairs window when it is laundry day - so - You Are Warned!

    Sometimes when strolling around the old core of the town you may get feeling of being on the same place already before. All this short and narrow streets might look alike familiar to you. Don't panic, everywhere you go it is easy to find the way out. Just follow your instincts and once you get to the seashore you're safe.

    Well worn wood stairs

    If you are not fit, and/or afraid of heights, this may not be for you. IN addition to that the stairs look like they still are the original from 1651; really. And they are very narrow, so size matters/ Take a look and decide for yourself.

    Laundry day

    Narrow streets of the old core

    When strolling in the old core of the town, you have to watch out because the sudden drop of the water might heat you from above. It might happen to you only if the laundy day. In such a case, the girl from above should tell you "skužaj" (sorry), sending a very big smile.

    Be extremely careful on the streets - especially in the old town - the Cobbles are very slippery when dry so goodness knows what it will be like when it rains.
    Even the flat paving slabs look like they can be dangerous

    Avoid These Places !

    AVOID THIS PLACE !

    There is no danger whatsoever in Rovinj but I should warn you about some camping grounds in Rovinj, if you intend to stay there.

    Camping Valdaliso: They DO NOT accept tarvellers WITHOUT tents & very expensive for a camp ground...23 to 38 Euros.

    Camping Monsena: (Photo on the left...) This is a Nudist Campground. They also DO NOT accept travellers WITHOUT tent.

    Minimum 3 Nights...

    A camping ground in Rovinj, Croatia

    If you arrive in Rovinj without accomodation, be prepared to pay high money for a room ! The room itself is not that expensive but the Tourist Agencies have put their own TAX on these rooms/houses. Stupid or what ?!

    You have to stay MINIMUM 3 nights, if not you have to pay up to 50% to 100% supplement TAX ! Stupid or what ?!

    The choice is yours of course, as long as you want a comfortability in one of the most beautiful places in Croatia....

    I stayed at a camping ground (photo on the left ) with an experience so good that I might be coming to Rovinj again.

    Angry seagull

    angry seagull
    1 more image

    I have never seen anything like that, a greatly angered large gull which was vented his anger on the empty container for food. Someone leaves food for the gulls in the courtyard in front of the cathedral, and they obviously have acquired the habit of going there to find food. This large gull apparently was late because the food container was emptied. In a fit of rage fiercely hungry seagull violently was hitting the empty food container with big beak and "kicking" it around.
    Encounter with such angry seagull, which has a very impressive size, is not innocuous, not even for adults. Access to the yard is free, so be careful on the gulls that can cause serious injury, especially to children.
