Top 10 things to do in Rovinj
Climb the Tower of St Euphemia

The largest baroque building in Istria, the Tower of St Euphemia is also the highest point in Rovinj, offering an enchanting view of the town and the archipelago that surrounds it. The church tower is a replica of the bell tower of St Mark’s Basilica in Venice, with a bronze statue of St Euphemia on its spire. The statue spins around to show the direction of the wind with her right hand.
Take a stroll through the old town

In a leisurely half-hour stroll you can see three of Rovinj’s most famous streets, starting with Carrera Street, full of galleries and small shops, passing to Bregovita Street, considered the most beautiful, and reaching the must-see Grisia Street, renowned for the traditional painting exhibitions organised there.
Take a ride along the bike trails of Golden Cape Park Forest

The protected Golden Cape Park Forest is a must-visit cycling, hiking and walking destination known for its Himalayan cedars, alleys of exotic cypresses and Mediterranean vegetation.
Visit Batana Museum

Rovinj honours its long fishing tradition in a museum dedicated to a small wooden flatboat – the batana. Here you can see a 15-minute film about the crafting of this specific flatboat accompanied with the sounds of the bitinada (a traditional Rovinj a capella song).
Visit Monkodonja

Located 5 kilometres east of Rovinj, the ancient village of Monkodonja dates back to the Bronze Age. Exceptionally well preserved, encircled by walls to a length of over 1 km, it is composed of three parts: a central barrow, crafts district, and living quarters. It is estimated that over one thousand inhabitants lived in the village.
Go birdwatching in the Palud Ornithological Reserve

Located only 10 km from Rovinj, this wetland area is famous for its richness of bird species. Palud is the only protected ornithological reserve in Istria and its biodiversity is due to the fusion of the wetland and the sea.
Don’t miss the magical sunsets

Did you know that Rovinj has over 130 sunny days during the year, which makes it the sunniest place on the Istrian peninsula? And in the evening, as the sun sets, the view of that beautiful city becomes extraordinary and magical. The sky becomes an explosion of orange, red, and golden, and nothing is better than finding a spot on the coast and enjoying these fantastic colors.
Scuba dive to the wreck of the Baron Gautsch

The Austro-Hungarian passenger ship Baron Gautsch, which sunk in 1914, still exudes the magical aura of La Belle Epoque, mostly because of its magnificently preserved wreck lying at the depth of 40 metres off the coast of Rovinj.
Sport fishing

The indented coast of the Rovinj area with its numerous bays, islets and cliffs is a habitat to many species of fish and a place of great enjoyment for fans of sport fishing.
Swim and sunbathe on the beach that connects Red Island and the island of Maškin

Don’t miss out on one of the most beautiful beaches in Istria. Explore the Island of St Andrew (Red Island), its trim trails and walkways, well-maintained gardens with around 120 plant species and an old castle housing the Count Huetterot Mini Museum, energy fields, a viewing spot, and a mausoleum on the island of Maškin.
