Istria Overview

Istria

Rovinj was a settlement of Illyrian tribes before being captured by the Romans. Over the years, it has belonged to various countries and empires, including Austria, Italy and the former nation of Yugoslavia. It has a population of over 14,000 and is situated on the north Adriatic Sea, on the western coast of the Istrian peninsula. Until it was filled over 250 years ago the peninsula on which the city lies was an island, separated from the mainland by a channel. Over 76% of the population are Croats, where other minorities include Italians, Serbs, Albanians and Bosniaks. The economy is predominantly supported by tourism and its art galleries, bars and restaurants work long hours in the peak seasons.
