Rovinj-Rovigno (Croatian pronounced [rǒʋiːɲ]; Italian: Rovigno, Ancient Greek: Ρυγίνιον (Ryginion), Latin: Ruginium) is a city in Croatia situated on the north Adriatic Sea with a population of 14,294 (2011). Located on the western coast of the Istrian peninsula, it is a popular tourist resort and an active fishing port. Istriot, a Romance language once widely spoken in this part of Istria, is still spoken by some of the residents. The town is officially bilingual, Italian and Croatian, hence both town names are official and equal.
This is the most ridiculous museum I have ever seen. It even not big enough to fit in a actual boat, and this is a museum about boat! Totally not worth the money for the ticket.
Everything is in Italian and Croatian. There is not even a real Batana boat in the museum. I want my 20 kuna back 😥
Take the batana trip, including diner, and the evening is wonderfull.
The Batana Eco-museum is unique on the Adriatic and Mediterranean! It is dedicated to the traditional wooden boat known as the batana and to the community which has chosen it as its symbol. As the town of Rovinj’s most widespread traditional vessel, the batana reflects the continuity of its local maritime heritage, as well as the continuity of the everyday lives of the local people. Must visit in Rovinj!
Great museum to learn more about batana boats. They also have a corner for playing where you learn about putting together all the parts of a batana boat.
Great little museum for those who love small boats.
