Rovinj is a small city with long congress tradition situated on the beautiful west coast of Istria, just underneath the Lim canal, today considered as the most romantic place in the Mediterranean! Due to the lack of space, houses are closely built, streets are narrow and squares are small, still untouched by modern urbanism. One of the most ‘photogenic’ towns in the Mediterranean, once a fishing town, today is a tourist resort. Owing to the sea and what it has to offer, ranging from sailing to discovering the underwater world, its therapeutic properties, today Rovinj is the destination for tourists from all over the world. Not to mention, that there are 134 sunny days in a year, which makes Rovinj the third sunniest spot in the Adriatic.
