Lim valley (Rovinj, Istria)

The Lim valley (Limska draga or Limska dolina) is the 35 km long valley of the river Pazinčica, which transforms into the Lim bay (Limski zaljev), a 10 kilometer long estuary. Lim Bay got its name from the Latin word limes meaning border because the bay was a natural border between the two Roman provinces. The Croats sometimes call it Limski kanal (Lim Channel), due to its narrow width. The estuary is sometimes called a fjord, even if it is not in fact a fjord but a ria, because it was not carved by a glacier but by the river eroding the ground on its way to the Adriatic Sea.

Rovinj Zgodovina


Rovinj HistoryRovinj, staro, a priljubljeno ribiško mesto, ki ga obkrožajo otoki in otočki, se nahaja na zahodni obali Istre in je eno izmed najbolj razvitih obmorskih letovišč na Hrvaškem. Rovinj je pomembno zgodovinsko in kulturno središče Istre. Staro mestno jedro leži na stožčastem rtu, ki je bilo do leta 1763 del obalnega otočka. V 18. stoletju se je vodni kanal, ki je otoček ločeval od celine, napolnil z zemljo. V 18. stoletju je bil Rovinj najbolj naseljeno mesto v beneškem delu Istre, takoj za Koprom.

Mesto je pravzaprav antična naselbina, ki je znana že več stoletij, vse odkar so jo obiskovali in naseljevali stari Grki in Rimljani, ki so tukaj pustili svoje sledi. Prva omemba mesta izhaja iz 7. stoletja, ko je mesto nosilo ime Castrum Rubini. Rimljani so tukaj zgradili otoško pristanišče, ki je bilo leta 1763 povezano s celino. V naslednjih stoletjih so prebivalci Rovinja vedno znova iskali zavetje pri sv. Evfemiji, zavetnici mesta. Katedrala, ki je posvečena tej svetnici dominira in varuje mesto. Druge pomembne znamenitosti so še: Staro mestno jedro, Baročna občina, Kapela sv. Trojice, Frančiškanski samostan, Grad na otoku sv. Andreja in številne druge. Neprecenljivi zgodovinski spomenik je tudi "Sedem starih mestnih vrat" od katerih so trojna vrata ohranjena v njihovi originalni podobi. To so: Vrata sv. Benedikta, Vrata pod zidom in Vrata sv. Križa.
