Food Scene
To eat on the go, nothing like one of the succulent bureks from Zvrk Burek. Probably the best bureks in town and a very good deal. There are no tables, but a picnic on a bench in the port with a stunning view of the old town is not a bad deal either!

For a getaway off the beaten track, enjoy a lunch in the hinterland at the incredible Konoba Toklarija in Sovinjsko Polje (reservation required. If you are here during fall or winter, ask for the table next to the fireplace!) which will serve you a gourmet – if rather expensive – meal. Once you are full, go visit Hum that, with its twenty or so inhabitants, claims to be the smallest village in the world.

Do you want a romantic cocktail or a glass of champagne to end the day in style? Valentino (Santa Croce 28) has an exceptional setting where you can hear the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks from your table. It is also very touristy. Love it or hate it!

Sightseeing
Note that the city is also home to a very active artistic community. If you want to see the work of these artists or buy a piece of art, stroll through the streets of the old city and take a look at the many galleries. Grisia is certainly the street with the largest number of art shops.

The neighboring region of Kvarner is home to a charming coastal town, Opatija, with surprising Austro-Hungarian architectural influences, in a territory where Venetian heritage is usually everywhere. We particularly recommend the very pleasant walk between Opatija and Volosko, along the seaside, to immerse yourself in a purely Belle Époque atmosphere.

Shopping
Before becoming a major tourist destination on the Croatian coast, Rovinj has always had a history closely related to fishing. This activity remains a significant economic driver for the city. You don’t need to walk more than 2 minutes from Cozy Koza to reach the fish market that perpetuates the tradition. Open until about 11 a.m., it offers a wide selection of fish and seafood. Make sure to ask for wild fish caught in Istria. Just across the street, you will find the vegetable market (with a delicious local olive oil!), as well as a butcher shop and various other small shops (selling excellent fresh eggs).
