Rovinj – The Secret Town

Rovinj is a beautiful small town situated on the coast of the North Adriatic Sea in Istria, Croatia. With a population of around 15,000 the town has plenty of people to provide the area with character and an identity however it is small enough to not get lost, like you can in the bigger European cities. It is a tourist spot for both Croatians and foreign visitors alike. People come to Rovinj every year, the summer months of July and August are especially busy in the town. Rovinj can cater for any budget when it comes to holiday accommodation.



Like every holiday resort you can find the best five star hotels here but the area also offers various low budget options including campsites for those with their own accommodation and small private apartments for people wanting a simple basic option. The tourism industry is a big part of the town’s economy bringing a lot of money into the town. Tourism also brings jobs and due to the tourism trade plenty of locals can find work and make a living thanks to the visitors. The other big industry in the town is the fishing trade; the town is a popular spot for fishermen who make a living selling to locals and hotels. You will taste some of the best fresh fish you have ever tasted in Rovinj. The climate in Rovinj is similar to most Mediterranean places, going as low as 5 degrees during the winter and getting up to low and mid-twenties during the summer months. The water temperature stays fairly warm making it a perfect resort to explore the sea.

To see a glimpse of the real Rovinj I highly recommend a walk around the old town, the area caters for locals more than tourists and gives you a real feel for the town. The first thing you will notice are the wonderfully preserved cobbled streets, the streets are narrow and weave through the town beautifully. The cobbles used on the streets are made using stones from Istria. The other thing you will notice is a lack of vehicles in the area creating a nice peaceful atmosphere which makes you forget you are in a tourist spot. A stroll down to the port is also something I would highly recommend while you are in Rovinj, a great place to watch the world go by. With plenty of bars and cafes around the port you can sit back and relax with a drink and see everything from a small one man fishing boat to the world’s biggest cruise ships pull into the port. The port is a great place for an evening meal, especially the fish restaurants offering you fish caught that day. You will find numerous little shops in the port area worth a look round, some are hidden well away so take the time to explore the area, it’s certainly worth it.

If you have decided Rovinj is the place for you then you will not regret your choice, this lovely little town is a real gem and will only continue to grow in popularity when more people become aware of its wonderful charm. A great place to escape on holiday, packed with things to do for everyone I am sure you will not be disappointed by this charming little resort in Croatia.
