Forgive me if I am using the term ‘trekking’ loosely…this was simply a day hike around the lovely city of Rovinj, Croatia. Our hotel was in Rovinj and we were able to do our day-trips from there- so if you are ever considering a visit to Croatia, I hope this can give you an idea of what it is like to stay near Rovinj. It is a small historic town that is very popular with the British and German tourists. Our hotel was an old Eastern-Bloc hotel remodeled with superb service and breakfast included and FULL of German-speaking and British tourists! They treated our toddler like royalty which made for a great experience. Check out the Park Hotel Rovinj if you are interested, here.
I have neglected to provide a quick review of the Country, so allow me to use wikipedia to do just that. Rovinj is located on the most western part of the landmass on the coast, only a 4,5 hour drive from Salzburg.
Our hotel is perfectly adjacent to the start of town, so the Mize’s began their day along the shore…
In an attempt to shorten the blogs, here is my newest attempt at a slideshow for those interested in Rovinj…CLICK ON A PIC FOR A FULL SLIDESHOW….
Now, onto the climb towards the church.
Dad left early to meet some of his work buddies, so Mom, Eliot and I continued our day scouting out the town.
When Dad returned, we went for a bike ride along this HUGE park in Rovinj, with absolutely incredible coast line. This IS one of the main reasons tourists choose Croatia…
