Hol18: Rovinj, Croatia (Hrvatska)

My first moments in Croatia (I find Hrvatska a bit difficult to pronounce) were getting off the ferry in Rovinj,  and Rovinj is very, very easy on the eye.
It’s got a very nice town square.

It’s got very pleasant bars – all decked out with the very recognisable flag.

In its old town centre, there is a baroque church overlooking the bay – the Church of St. Euphemia (she was from Byzantium, apparently)

Around the town, there’s no shortages of places to have a drink or to photograph.

While I was here, I tried for the first time some Rollei RPX25 film, it was pretty bright after all.  And the RPX25 is the most grain-free film I’ve shot.

Rovinj was nice introduction to Croatia and a base for a relaxing few days.  It’s not the most dynamic of places, but a good entry point travelling by ferry from Italy.

Camera:  Ricoh KR5 with Fomapan 100 (the grainier shots) and Rollei RPX25 (no grain)
