Rovinj

History

Rovinj or Castrum Rubini was first mentioned in the Ravenna Cosmographia in the 7th century AD as founded between the 3rd and 5th centuries AD. However, according to archaeological findings, the place was inhabited as far back as the prehistoric period - the Bronze and Iron Ages, when the culture of the Histrian tribe who lived in Istria and traded with the Greeks and Etruscans was at its peak.

Castrum Rubini became Ruigno, then Ruginio, Ruvigno and finally Rovinj.

Rovinj was an important seaport for merchant ships on their way from the Middle East to Venice, and Rovinj sailors were acknowledged for both their skill and courage.

In 1763 the island was joined physically to the mainland to become the Rovinj peninsular we recognize today.

In the last few years in Rovinj, as everywhere in the world, free climbing is a sport that is increasingly spreading and gaining popularity.

Although the majority of people still consider free climbing an extreme sport, the fact is that it is being practiced by the old and the young, women and men, and that with an experienced guide and teacher the risks are reduced to minimum. Besides, it is an activity requiring constant maintenance of physical fitness and shape bringing one to a direct contact with treasures of nature and its beauty.

It is possible in the following locations:

The place where one can park the car is 10 to 15 minutes from Rovinj and the climbing site can be reached in a few minutes on foot.

IMPORTANT: The temperatures are high in summertime, so we recommend you bring enough water with you.

– this climbing site is next to the road to Poreč, at the entrance to Limska Draga.

The rock faces south, so in summertime it is recommend to wait until after 5 p.m. for a climb - then the rock-face will be in the shade. Although the clmbing site is right beside the road, not many car pass by outside the peak season.
