Exploring the tiny town of Rovinj, Croatia

Rovinj is a small fishing port in northenr Croatia that has been a part of just about everything from the Byzantine Empire to Venice, Austria, and Italy.  As such it is a colorful outpost, surrounded by the sea with an old church tower as the centerpiece and narrow lanes for getting lost.

 Rovinj is very Venetian

 It is a small town of about 14k

 The waterfront

 Puffer fish

 The narrow lanes of Rovnj

 A great place for lunch

 A walkway around the outer reaches of the island provided a great sea breeze

 Drinks on the rocks

 A cool shop with an even cooler view 

 AN old gate 

 Rovinj is on the Istrian peninsula - an area known for beauty, sea salt, and truffles

 AN old fishing ship - Rovinj has been a fishing city since Roman times 

 The day started to get crummy

 In old town 

 My grandma found her favorite store ever 

 Nice little abode


 Bike and art 

 Purple guys 

 A fountain just outside the city gates 

 Strange art

 Very cramped city, it is dense and at times claustrophobic



 A garden of strange old things 

 Some great color with an island in the background 

 I waited 5 minutes to take this picture without people walking by 

 Friendly seagull

 A church
