STARI GRAD, Rovinj

4.8
Walk the main street of STARI GRAD and browse the many independent shops and art galleries. The area is the keeper of Illyrian, Roman, Byzantine, and Venetian heritage. Enter the narrow, cobbled alleyways, and step into the small squares full of medieval, Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque buildings and terraces. Small churches, monuments, old doors, and arches are tucked behind every corner. You may hear residents still speaking Istriot, a Romance language once widely used in this area. Head to the northern side of town to see the remains of the protective walls. Once you've worked up an appetite, enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants.

Where to stay in Rovinj

Rovinj boasts arguably the greatest variety of lodging options in Croatia, offering everything from five-star suites with sweeping views of the Adriatic, to small but tidy rooms just steps from the historical old town. The city draws a growing number of summer vacationers, so book well in advance if you wish to stay near popular beaches. Seafront hotels remain the most expensive option, but budget-minded travelers can easily find plenty of affordable accommodations by exploring the city's family-run guesthouses.
