Through the Baroque Balbi arch leads the narrow street Grisia through the old town center with taverns, bars and small galleries. Stroll through the streets, past many attractive Venetian facades, green courtyards, through old archways and look for the paintings, beautiful arts and crafts at all price categories.
The parish church of Rovinj was built in 1736 at the top of the old town and is dedicated to the Saint Eufemia. The baroque building in Venetian style is sublime on the rocky island and shines in the sun. Impressive is the 59 m high bell tower, one can conquer over 183 narrow steps. It offers a fantastic view over the rooftops of Rovinj and the offshore islets. The Eufemia statue on top of the tower has proven itself as a reliable weather saint: it turns out in the wind to the sea, the prospects are good, she looks towards the land, threatening bad weather!
Have a drink on the Marshal Tito Square in one of the lovely cafes and let your gaze roam across the marina, picturesque fountains, the venerable Hotel Adriatic, the pink late-Renaissance clock tower, the Baroque Califfi Palace with the City Museum or at just at the passing people. All in all a lovely ensemble!
At Marshal Tito Square starts one of the longest and most beautiful waterfronts Istria and takes you past the marina and luxury hotels to the Golden Cape, the Zlatni Rt. Again and again, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the city silhouette or linger in of the many restaurants, cafés, ice cream parlors and bars.
The Zlatni rt, located at the south of the marina, is a 52-hectare forest park, which impresses with its lush flourishing Mediterranean vegetation. Between cypresses, oaks, pines, pine trees and all sorts of exotics you will certainly find a wild romatic place on pebble beach with crystal clear water.
