In northwest Croatia, on the Istrian peninsula, the Venetian-era seaside town of Rovinj is made up of pastel-colored houses ringing a pretty fishing harbor, and presided over by a hilltop church with an elegant bell tower. 


Those who visited Rovinj, rave about the town for its romantic charm, colorful streets and glorious sunsets. 

 

Besides the nearby pebble beaches, the main tourist attraction is the Batana Eco-Museum on the seafront, which tells the story of the batana, a type of wooden boat used by local fishermen.


There are also plenty of smart hotels, up-market seafood restaurants, and art galleries.

The locals speak a dialect, which mixes both the Croatian and Italian languages.
