Recently Japan’s Travel Agents Association were tasked with naming what it considered to be the 30 prettiest towns in Europe, which it would promote to holidaymakers.

Among the 30 prettiest towns in Europe they named was one Croatian town – the town of Rovinj in Istria.

It is not hard to see why the small fishing port on the west coast of the Istrian peninsula impressed the Japanese. With a tangle of cobbled streets leading to the hilltop church of St. Euphemia, Rovnij is a stunning destination.

The town is also home to Croatia’s only Michelin Star restaurant – Monte.

Also to make the cut were two Italian towns, Civita di Bagnoregio and Procida, as well as Lech in Austria, the Irish town of Kilkenny and Soglio in Switzerland.
