One of Croatia’s most beautiful cities, Rovinj sits picturesquely upon a rock promontory, on the western side of the Istrian Peninsula.
On the edge of the main-square and of the harbor, the houses of the old parts of the city - intersected by the winding, cobble-stoned narrow streets and alley-ways – form a semi-circle around the hill on which Saint Euphemia's basilica is located. This church is the city’s most famous tourist attraction.
Built in the Baroque style in the 17th century, its bell-tower, from which one can see the entire city, was modeled on that of St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice. The coffin of the city’s patron saint, St. Euphemy, who died a martyr, lies in the sanctuary of the church.
The city’s Baroque style Town Hall dates from the 17th century. Next to its monuments, the city’s most fascinating tourist attraction is the Rovinj Aquarium, which introduces the viewer to the colorful life-forms in the sea; it is considered to be the city’s oldest museum.
The beaches at Rovinj and its neighborhood are mostly rocky and covered with shingles.
