Rovinj (Rovigno) marina



Built on a rocky outcrop on the east coast of Istria, Rovinj was an island before being connected to the mainland in 1763. The city is an active fishing port. Accessible by boat from Trieste, it includes a large Italian community.

When approaching the south harbour the passage between Sv Katar- ina islet and the cylindrical buoy with a post (black and red, two cones on top their bases together) which marks the E edge of a shoal (E of the islet), must not be used.
