Old Town apartment
About the home
Rovinj is one of Croatia's oldest & prettiest destinations, a "little Venice" as a writer called it.
During the summer Rovinj is a city full of life. Clear azure sea, jagged and varied coastline protected by dense vegetation, as well as rich underwater, make ideal conditions for experiencing perfect summer.
Rovinj's summers are exceptionally eventful. There is hardly an evening without some concert you can go to, whether you prefer traditional local music, pop, jazz or classical music. You can visit exhibits where many local and foreign artists exhibit their works, theatrical performances, artistic happening.
The apartment is on the second floor of a beautiful medieval building at the heart of the Old Town, close to all amenities, as well as a picturesque harbour, art galleries, restaurants, cafes on the cliffs, boat trips to Venice and surrounding archipelagos, outdoor cultural events, promenade.... The stone-cobbled path outside the apartment leads to 'Grisia', Rovinj's most beautiful cobbled street lined with unique and inspiring art galleries. Old Town is pedestrianised and the nearest car park is 5 min. away.

The Istria region
Sometimes called the ‘new Tuscany’, Istria (Istra to Croatians) is the heart-shaped 3600-sq-km peninsula just south of Trieste, Italy, with a landscape of green rolling hills, drowned valleys and fertile plains. While the scenic interior is beginning to attract artists and artisans to its hilltop villages, the rugged and indented coastline is enormously popular with the sun ‘n’ sea set.
Just across the water is Italy, but the pervasive Italian influence makes it seem much closer. Istria’s historic ties to Italy are cemented by the floods of Italian tourists in summer, enchanted by the fresh seafood, excellent pasta and the fact that Italian is a second language in Istria.
The Rovinj area
Rovinj (Rovigno in Italian) is Istria’s star attraction. It is one of the last of the true Mediterranean fishing ports. Fishermen haul their catch into the harbour in the early morning, followed by a horde of squawking gulls, and mend their nets before lunch. Prayers for a good catch are sent forth at the massive Cathedral of St Euphemia whose 60m-high tower punctuates the peninsula. Wooded hills and low-rise luxury hotels surround a town webbed by steep, cobbled streets. The 13 green, offshore islands of the Rovinj archipelago make for pleasant, varied views and you can swim from the rocks in the sparkling water below Hotel Rovinj.
