Russian photo story from Rovinj in Croatia

Famous Russian photographer and blogger Daniel Kordan in one of his many trips visited Croatia, more precise a beautiful coastal Croatian town by the name “Rovinj”. A town founded by Celto-Illyrians, developed by Romans and later Slavicized by Croats and as such is a unique type of cultural and architectural mixture of Mediterranean and Slavic origin. It is a city in Croatia situated on the north of the beautiful Adriatic Sea and Rovinj has a small population of 14,294 people. Through the journey inside of Rovinj our blogger was left breathless by the untouched old town and beautiful aura it had.
