Rovinj is a town at the western coast of Istria, with about 15,000 inhabitants. It is a developed tourist resort because of its mild Mediterranean climate, beautiful nature, quality accommodation and good traffic connections with major airports. Located on a top of the hill in the town’s middle, the monumental St. Euphemia’s Basilica dominates its panorama and offers a stunning view at the beautiful Rovinj Archipelago, consisting of 22 islets. Rovinj itself was also originally founded on an islet, connected to the mainland in the 18th century. The nearby Lim Valley, the fjord-like estuary of the Pazinčica river, is also worth seeing, and provides the local restaurants with high-quality shellfish. There are also many bars, cafés and art galleries in the town. When traffic is concerned, Rovinj is located near three international airports, Pula (20 miles) and Rijeka-Krk (80 miles) in Croatia, as well as Trieste-Ronchi (70 miles) in Italy. In the summer, Ryanair and other budget airlines offer direct flights from Western Europe to these, and there is also a ferry route between Venice and Rovinj. The accommodation consists of ten hotels, including some four- and five-star ones, private accommodation and various camps. One of the latter is Valalta, among the best Croatian naturist camps.
