Rovinj is a stunning town.
The area was inhabited by man in the Bronze and Iron ages, and later the Romans had a presence here. The main influence of what you can see today comes from the Venetians. I was intrigued by the fact that it was once an island, but in 1763 the isthmus (just to the left of the photo above) was filled in as the town grew bigger.
The older parts of the town consist of winding alleys.
