Rovinj main city

Album: Rovinj, Region: Istria


From the 16th to the 18th centuries, its population expanded dramatically with an influx of immigrants fleeing Turkish invasions of Bosnia and continental Croatia. The town began to develop outside the walls and, in 1763, the islet was connected to the mainland and Rovinj became a peninsula. Perhaps because of its location, Rovinj was spared the epidemics that ravaged the rest of the peninsula and enjoyed greater economic development. 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.
