Time to spare?
If you have an hour or two to spend in Rovinj enjoy the city, do not spend them alone on the beach by absorbing the Sun's rays. Rovinj is much more than the sun and the beach and it would be a pity to miss it.
First of all, visit the Old Town core. This protected historical unit is among the most beautiful parts of Rovinj. Drive through the narrow streets of the center to the church of St. Euphemia, the patron saint of the city. This imposing church is situated in a place where it used to be a small church of St. Juraj, which, after the arrival of the sarcophagus, became too small for many pilgrims.
Based on the legend of Sarcophagus and St. Euphemia each year, in Rovinj, on September 16, hosts celebrate its patrons day when visitors come from all sides and a big celebration is organized.
In addition to the mentioned events and sights in Rovinj and its surroundings, visit: Rovinj's native museum, the Franciscan monastery, the Multimedia Center, the church of St. Tome, the geological park of Fantasia Monfiorenzo and others.
The specificity of the city is Grisia - an outdoor exhibition. It's held on the second Sunday in August. On that day, from early morning to late afternoon, various artists from Croatia and different parts of the world exhibit their works, ie cultural creations connecting the main city center and the church of St. Euphemia.
The catechists are awaiting the proclamation of the winners who get rich and valuable prizes. Rovinj is especially alive on that day. Artistic creations of colorful ornamented streets and houses give a special beauty, and they are rounded by joyful shouts and laughter of children.
Ok. I get rid of my luggage. Now what?
If you have left the bus and put your suitcases in the wardrobe at the bus station or in some kind of private accommodation in which you're staying, you're finally free to go a little further from the strict center.
Lim Bay, Dvigrad, Monkodonja, Ancient Roman Cistern and Palud are only a small part of the natural and historical sights hidden in the immediate vicinity of Rovinj. The last one stands out as the only ornithological reservation which conceals 220 species of birds that have been observed to date.
Lim Bay is a miracle of nature and is among the most beautiful landscapes of Istria. People also called it Lim Fjord or Channel. The bay itself is longer than 10 km and is full of bends. Wondering where it ends? In Lim Bays ass. (We are serious, his bottom is called - Cul da Limo or in English Lim Bays ass.)
Within it is the Romuald Cave. This cave is 105 m long and high in its central part 5 to 6 m. It is a spurious phenomenon because crib decorations are only to the left, while the right side is empty.
Dvigrad is a medieval town located fifteen kilometers from Rovinj. The preservation of the city can be thanked to the fact that during the historical wars it was not broken, but simply abandoned by its inhabitants.
To this day, it has preserved the following: the city gate, the two rings of city walls, several defense towers and most of the two hundred houses. Unfortunately, the center of the town, the church of St. Sofia, at the beginning of 19th century collapsed. The main reason for this was the lack of maintenance.
