The city of Rovinj is the most romantic place in Istrian peninsula. Its romantic appearance is due to a limited urban space, which has resulted in houses built tightly to each other, in narrow streets and tiny squares which are still intact by modern urbanism. The city is dominated by a baroque church of St Euphemia, protector of the city. (more…)
