Rovinj: A fishing town

As promised here is my first urban walking post.

Calling Rovinj a fishing town is probably not quite right. This small Croatian port town on the Istrian peninsula is foremost a tourist destination. It is undoubtedly picturesque and so most of the summer filled with tourists taking a break from the nearby beaches. If you visit off season though, you get a chance to see past the tourist humdrum. You experience a quieter side of this little town and its port, which is still used by local fishermen.

I visited Rovinj on one of the German May bank holidays. It was my fourth time in this little town. I just like coming back here. The tourist season hasn’t started properly yet and so it was a perfect time to enjoy a mix of hanging out in cafes and on Rovinj’s tiny town beaches as well as just strolling around the old town. Unlike in July or August, there was plenty of space for everyone.
