Make sure to visit Rovinj, the Croatian champion of tourism
In other words, Rovinj wins the title of the best, making it even more important to put Istria on your camping list for summer 2023.
When exploring, visit the church of St. Euphemia, Rovinj's patron saint. The church is a short walk to the top of the old town and rewards with worthwhile views of Rovinj's archipelago. To learn more about Rovinj's specific Batana boats and cultural heritage with an important story, pay a visit to the House of Batana, an eco-museum listed on the UNESCO Register of Good Safeguarding Practices for the preservation of the intangible cultural heritage of the world.
Michelin-star restaurants, renowned winemakers
Lovers of fine dining will enjoy the gastronomic offer of Rovinj, as it has two Michelin star-awarded restaurants: Monte and Cap Aureo, while the other two, Agli Amgici and La Puntulina, have been recognized and recommended in the Michelin guide.
But, as a Mediterranean destination, Rovinj also has a variety of taverns, restaurants, and other fine dining options that are more budget-friendly and offer authentic Istrian seafood and meat cuisine. In recent years many new winemakers on the rise alongside the established ones have turned Rovinj into a small paradise for winetasting tours.
Paradise nature for an unforgettable active vacation
The Punta Corrente, known as the Golden Cape forest, is an impressive protected natural oasis with hundreds of years old pine, cypresses, and Himalayan cedar trees. It is perfect for family strolls, walking, hiking, cycling, and even yoga sessions. You can also swim and bathe, and there are designated dog areas.
Rovinj's archipelago has over 20 beautiful islands, islets, and reefs, most of which you can visit with a daily boat tour. The two largest, St. Andrew and St. Catherine have beautiful hidden beaches with amazing views. The archipelago abounds in more than 400 plant species, making it a true Mediterranean heaven.
Just a few kilometers from Rovinj, a spectacle of nature is worth your visit. The famed Lim fjord is a beautiful natural bay with many secret swim spots, two seafood restaurants, and many hiking trails that reveal the magic of the place.
