Welcome to Istria – the land of wine, olive oils, and truffles. One of its crown jewels is the picturesque town of Rovinj.

What once was an island divided from the mainland by a canal, today is one of the most popular towns in Croatia – and rightfully so.

Enter through the Balbi’s Gate and start exploring the maze of cobblestoned streets. The Large Square is small and barely a square, the streets are narrow and the buildings are tall, making Rovinj the perfect place for some amazing photos.

Don’t miss the artsy Grisia Street, where once a year a big art festival takes place and everyone is welcome to display their work. The ideal place to get some local art!

Continue uphill and be rewarded with breathtaking views of islands and sea. Still, one island is missing – Cissa, the Croatian Atlantis, which sunk. Or did it ever exist at all?

Atop of the hill, you will find the famous St. Euphemia’s Church with Rovinj’s patron saint herself protecting it from the highest belltower in Istria. Enter the church and see the mysterious stone sarcophagus that, according to the legend, floated into Rovinj’s harbor.

Did you know that Rovinj had speakeasies centuries before the United States? Illegal taverns run by locals flourished under Venetian rule and some are still in business.

Proper sightseeing wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the market. Fresh fish and seafood, black and white truffles, Teran and Malvazija wines, and of course – olive oils! Flos Olei, the world-renown guide to olive oils, selected Istria as the best olive oil region in the world, for five years in a row already!

Carrera Street is the shopping street of Rovinj. Clothes, local products, and the best ice cream in town make it a pleasant walk. After a long walk, it is time to sit down and enjoy the best of local cuisine. Fuzi with truffles, ombolo, boškarin, black risotto, calamari, or scampi alla busara, the choice is yours and you can’t go wrong.
