Just my luck the arch is being renovated. Have found a good bar just beyond it though, Bruno a cool place to escape the hot sun.

Walked under the Baltic Arch last week, and it is still covered with scaffolding and netting. Almost completely hidden from public view.

Sadly this gate is covered up and we were unable to view it.Assume it's being renovated. Not much else to say as there wasn't anything to see. Rovinj in general is fabulous!

The arch is very nice It’s location is weird to say the least The details could be highlighted but a whole arch picture is compromised by the surroundings

If you're walking through Rovinj (which I highly recommend doing) you can't miss this arch. It's gorgeous, and very fitting with the character of the town.

This gate is just off the main square near the port. It provides and entrance to the old town from where you can walk up the hill to the cathedral. Make sure that you stop to take in the beauty and history of this before...More
