Next on our agenda in Croatia, not far from Pula, was Rovinj, totally unknown to me. I didn’t know what to expect except that our guide book said it was the most Italian of Croatian cities. It turned out to be just beautiful with a fabulous old city sitting on a lovely harbor. When we arrived we didn’t know where we were going to stay so we parked our car and walked around the streets a while and finally arrived at the harbor and found a hotel sitting right there overlooking the water. We went in and asked if they had a room and, if so, was there parking and air conditioning (it was very hot). And they did. The room had a small balcony that looked over the water. It was an old hotel, the Adriatic, but such a fabulous location. It was a good find.
We climbed to the top of the hill to find this church, the Church of St. Euphemia, who is seen on top of the church and I read that the statue will turn on its axis depending on the wind although I didn’t see it happen. Her sarcophagus lies inside the church.
