Cats from Rovinj {Croatia}

With its picturesque harbor along the Adriatic Sea, it is easy to see why the pretty city of Rovinj in Croatia is referred to as the "Venice of of Istria.” A few centuries of Venetian rule has left its elegant mark on the city's architecture, and its close proximity to Venice has led to a steady flow of ocean traffic between the two cities. In fact, it makes great sense to book a stay in Rovinj and combine it with a daytrip to Venice.

Rovinj and the whole Istrian peninsula is a fascinating part of Croatia. Its history represents many layers from different eras. You will find yourself within easy reach of dinosaur footprints, preshistoric cave and mound sites, Roman ruins, Byzantine churches, and, more recently, the summer residence of one of the old stalwart communist rulers.

For cat lovers, it's also a dream come true. Rovinj is home to an unbelievable number of stray cats which you are more than likely to encounter in your travels. They will beg for their supper every night in front of the local cafes and block your way on the street to get your attention.

  1. You always have excellent pictures of the cats and the beautiful surroundings they live in. The one cat peeking from the window was almost a Where's Waldo pic:) I would be so tempted to take one home if they showed affection

  3. Why is there so many strays? Don't people neuter their cats there?

    1. People think kitties can take care of themselves... so they don't get the care and medical. It is a sad fact all around the world.

  7. Ahh that last one is so cute. I found a lovely cat last night. Paul wouldn't let me keep it but I imagine my dad wouldn't have been happy with me turning up in the middle of the night with a stray cat anyway.
