Red Bull Air Race Rovinj 2014 Challenger

Rovinj is a small town situated on the western coast of Istria in Croatia, the largest peninsula on the Adriatic coastline. With a stunning natural heritage and beautiful landmarks in abundance – including the Golden Cape Park Forest, protected islands and coastal area – Rovinj has long drawn visitors from all over the world.

Over the centuries, Rovinj’s rich cultural heritage has been woven into the historic façades and bustling stone streets of the town. Rovinj flourished in the medieval period under the Republic of Venice, and in the Old Town some of the medieval city’s striking churches, walls and fortifications still stand today. It’s not surprising that this picturesque Istrian coastal town, with its brimming galleries, small taverns, restaurants, and an ever-present Mediterranean joie-de-vivre, presents one of the top Croatian tourist destinations offering a variety of accomodation options including two five star hotels that represent the reference point for style and quality in Croatia.

Croatia itself has a long tradition in aviation and, thanks to the local Mediterranean climate and abundance of quaint airport strips, many active sports pilots are able to hone their skills in the region all year round.
