The historic fishing town of Rovinj (pronounced row-VEEN with n sounding like a soft nyuh as in some Spanish words) has worked hard to retain its rustic charm while polishing its appeal for the many tourists who visit. It is the second most popular Croatian tourist spot on the Peninsula. Unlike historic Pula, Rovinj's main appeal is atmospheric. Its dramatic hilly peninsula overlooks the fishing boats in the harbor and the many green islands off the coast, some of which are so close you can swim there. Its most famous building is the St. Euphemia Church and its beautiful bell tower. The historic town of Pula has many Roman, Medieval and Renaissance historic buildings, the most famous of which is the stunning white Arena. The hilltop star-shaped fortress sits in the center of the city's compact historic center. The west side of the Istrian Peninsula has a rugged coastline which offers resorts and beaches but very little sand. Scuba and other active water sports are popular in the area and trips to the nearby Brijuni Islands, a Croation National Park, is a popular day trip. To the north of Rovinj is historic Porec, which sits on a peninsula that offers the UNESCO World Heritage Euphrasian Basilica and its adjacent museum. Between Rovinj and Porec is the long narrow Lim Bay, which is neither a fjord nor a canal, though often called both. Boat tours are a lovely and restful experience. Within the Istrian peninsula is the famous town of Pazin, Jules Verne's Pisino in the novel Matthias Sanddorf, where the castle, dramatic gorge and underwater lake play an important role in the adventure story.
