Rovinj, Croatia

1st September – 4th September

Rovinj, one very quaint little coastal town. Being in the far north of Croatia, there seems to be a greater Italian influence here.

After yet another bus, our last stop in Croatia was Rovinj, in the far north of the country on the western coast of the Istrian peninsula.  It is technically bilingual, with both Croatian and Italian spoken.  The old town is situated on a small peninsula, so is largely surrounded by water.  This was a lovely little place to spend a few days.  It is a bit touristy, but we were staying out of the old town area, so it was actually quite peaceful.

The always incredible coastline of Croatia. This was one place we briefly stopped on our bus journey from Zadar to Rovinj.

There were some pretty lovely little spots to sit, tucked in between the houses on the waters edge. And even better to jump right in and go for a swim.

So after almost three weeks in Croatia, it was time to move on.  Next up, Slovenia!
