Istra Peninsula, Croatia

Rovinj, Croatia
(Rovigno in Italian)


Explored the fishing harbor and hill-top Cathedral of St. Euphemia.  It is the largest baroque building in Istria. 

Later I wandered down the winding narrow backstreets below the cathedral.

Pula, Croatia is a large regional center with a well-preserved Roman amphitheatre.

Pula's town square has been used as a common meeting place for over two thousand years.

Took a excursion boat around the beautiful islands of Brijuni National Park.

Opatija was a fashionable resort in the 19th century where aristocrats came to take the waters.
