Rovinj is an important centre on the Western coast of Istrian region (cca. 15.000 inhabitants).
When you go up to the Old Town that is squeezed on a narrow peninsula, when you walk through its steep meandering lanes, cobbled squares and campiellis, you enter the centuries past by. This ancient settlement (3rd centuny) was first mentioned by, Anonymous of Ravenna at the beginning of 8th century.
The Rovinj coastal area is very well articulated with numerous bays, creeks, and capes. There are places of great natural and ecological value: forest park Punta Corente-Muntrav, St. Andrea's archipelago, the Palud marsh, the Limski kanal Fjord, and Monfiorenzo cave. Along the coast, with a markedly Mediterranean flora and fauna, a sup-Mediterranean climate with a moderate humidity level prevails.
Interesting note: Jules Verne, the father of science fiction, in search of unique places for his novels, chose Rovinj as a setting for some chapters of his novel "Mathias Sandorf".
