Rovinj by night

Album: Rovinj, Region: Istria


In the 4th and 5th centuries, Rome and Istria came under assault from Huns and Visigoths and the empire began to crumble. The Byzantine Empire crushed the Ostrogoths in the 6th century and Istria remained under Byzantine rule from 539 to 751. The most impressive remnant of Byzantine culture is the Euphrasian Basilica in Porec, with its stunning mosaics. Rovinj, a picturesque Istrian town is an oasis of beautiful nature and exceptionally agreeable climate. The old town of Rovinj is entirely contained within an egg-shaped peninsula, with the bus station just to the south-east. Istria is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea.
