An aerial view of the Istrian town of Rovinj, a popular tourist hotspot but also a lively fishing port. As the Istrian County is bilingual due to a large Italian minority population, you may also know it as Rovigno.

Rovinj/Rovigno was already a settlement of Venetian or Illyrian tribes before being captured by the Romans, who called it Arupinium or Mons Rubineus, and later Ruginium and Ruvinium. Built on an island close to the coast, it became connected to the mainland much later, in 1763, by filling in the channel.

Rovinj/Rovigno is today the third most populous town in the county, behind Pula/Pola and Poreč/Parenzo.
