The Venetian old town of Rovinj is full of narrow cobbled streets which wind up the hill and overlook the sparkling Adriatic Ocean. It’s home to little artists’ shops and galleries where you can pick up trinkets, gifts, and souvenirs, as well as having some excellent restaurants. Head down to the waterfront for parks, yachts, and some cool beach bars. If you prefer to spend your days on the beach, Lone Bay is just a 15-minute walk away. Here you’ll find a group of little shingle bays where you can spend your days soaking up the sun and ordering refreshments from the snack bars.

July and August are the hottest months (temperatures can reach into the mid-30s) and attract the most visitors. June, September and October are great months to visit, as crowds are smaller but the weather still tends to be warm and dry (spot on for sightseeing).
Tipping is becoming more commonplace in Croatia, especially in more upmarket establishments where around 10% has become the norm. In bars and more casual restaurants, just leave the coins in your change. At your hotel, tip porters and maids 15 kuna or so. Taxi drivers don’t expect a tip, but it’s a nice gesture to round up the fare.
The official language of Croatia is Croatian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
