STARI GRAD, Rovinj

(4.8/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
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. Put STARI GRAD into our Rovinj vacation builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Rovinj.

  • All the charm of the visit apparently desolate of historic small town lived mainly in summer. with the obvious inconvenience to find closed many businesses, restaurants etc, but also with the wonderful sensation of full possession away from the crowd! Very nice!
