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.

História mesta Rovinj


Rovinj HistoryRovinj je staré, ale populárne rybárske mestečko obklopené ostrovmi a ostrovčekmi. Nachádza sa na západnom pobreží Istrie a je jedným z najrozvinutejších prímorských letovísk v Chorvátsku. Rovinj je dôležité historické a kultúrne stredisko v Istrii. Staré mesto leží na myse, ktorý bol do roku 1763 súčasťou pobrežného ostrovčeka. V 18. storočí bol kanál zasypaný. V 18. storočí bol Rovinj po Kopare najľudnatejším mestom v oblasti Ventínskej časti Istrie.

Starobylé osídlenie je známe už pred stáročiami, keď starí Gréci a Rimania okupovali tieto oblasti a zanechali tu stopy. Mesto bolo prvýkrát spomenuté v 7. storočí ako Castrum Rubini. Rimania vybudovali na ostrove prístav, ktorý bol rozšírený na pevninu až v roku 1763. Počas stáročí obyvatelia mesta Rovinj vždy hľadali ochranu svätej Eufémie. Katedrála, ktorá je venovaná tejto svätici, dominuje a chráni mesto. Ďalšími významnými pokladmi mesta sú: Staré mesto, Kaplnka sv. Trojice, Františkánsky kláštor, Hrad na Ostrove sv. Ondreja a mnoho ďalších. Neoceniteľnou historickou pamiatkou je "Sedem starých mestských brán", z ktorých si len tri brány zachovali pôvodný tvar. Sú to: Brána sv. Benedikta, Portico a Brána svätého kríža.
