The Istria region
Situated in the direct proximity of the Western European civilization on one side and on the border of a different cultural milieu on the other, Istria has an enviable history, written at the crossroads of three large European cultures- Slavic, Roman, and German.
Millennial political claims, incessant tensions, and the division of this small area among various states and political influences of dominant European powers decisively influenced the specificity of life and variety of cultural influences on the Istrian peninsula. Through the peninsula, since the ancient times, roads went from the Mediterranean to mid-Europe, or the area of Pannonia and the other way round.
Through the tumultuous Istrian history, we mark frequent changes of rulers - from the Roman Empire and Byzantium, through the Frank State, the Aquileian Patriarchy, Venetian Republic, the Pazin County, Illyric Provinces, Austria, Italy, to Yugoslavia.
On this turbulent area, historic events were caused by frequent migrations and refugees, which also causes the changes of population, traditions, and cultures. Numerous nations left their traces in this area: the Liburni, the Histri (after whom the peninsula was named), the Greeks, the Celts, the Romans, the Ostrogoths, the Byzantines, the Langobards, the Croats, the Franks, the Venetians, the Austrians, the Italians ...
'So large, if you lived twice you wouldn't get to know it and so small that you can carry it in your hart'
- by Gordan Vunak, artist
When you go up to the Old Town that is squeezed on a narrow peninsula, when you walk through its steep meandering lanes, cobbled squares and campiellis, you enter the centuries past by.
To stop in front of the baroque town hall (17th century), enter the church of St.Euphemia (18th century), take a look of the Chapel of Holy Trinity (13th century), breathe in the peculiar air of the old manuscripts in the Franciscan monastery (18th century), wander through the Town Museum, stop and listen when the Clock strikes the magical Rovinj hours...
You have just started a trip through a seventeen centuries old town.
Carefully positioned on the south side of Rovinj Centener is a predominantly residential area with a large selection of private tourist accommodation. Its proximity to the best of Rovinj beaches, quiet residential roads with plenty of parking space and a well equipped supermarket make it very popular by the locals and visitors.
Once you reach the sea, going to the east will take you through a number of the best Rovinj camping sites each with their own swimming pool and catering facilities while going to the west will reveal the best part of the protected forest area and its secluded beaches with plenty of sun and shadow.
And at no point you will loose the view of the local islands nor the view of the fishing boats and luxury yachts that frequently circle this part of Rovinj coast.
This is the town of world regattas, international tennis tournaments, but it primarily belongs to recreation sportsmen and amateurs, who play, run and swim just for the fun of it. Besides the recreational activities which you can find in large cities - from bowling and tennis to mini-golf and basketball - this town offers you all the things that you cannot find at home. So if you feel like facing the challenge of sailing, underwater fishing, paraflying - you have come to the right place. Or maybe riding? Why not try the unique experience of riding through forest "grown" out of the sea?
In tourist resorts, in hotels and on camping sites you will find all kinds of recreational facilities. On the sea: a water - skiing school, sailing, water bikes. On land: a tennis school, tennis courts, volley-ball, basketball, a riding school, bowling, soccer, darts, a gymnasium, a massage parlour and a sauna.

"comfortable apartment in excellent location"
We had a really good fortnight in this apartment. It is in a great location - easy to get to the beach and to Rovinj. You can walk quickly into Rovinj by the road or enjoy a longer, scenic walk by the sea through the country park. Rovinj is a lovely place with lots of good places to eat. We hired a car for 4 days and visited other parts if Istria - hill top towns, other coastal resorts and interesting towns like Labin. The local beach was excellent - clear water and great swimming. There is a good supermarket a few minutes walk away and some local bars.
The apartment itself is very comfortable. We had everything we needed. There is Wifi and air conditioning. The kitchen is well equipped with a good sized fridge and a full sized dishwasher. The terrace is much better than we expected. With the windows open, it is a lovely place to sit and drink a glass of wine. We ate on the terrace regularly.
Selma is very helpful. We took advantage of her offer of airport transfer and that was good. She showed us around the area on the way to the apartment.
All in all, a great apartment.
