Limski Fjord, Istria, Croatia

One of the most beautiful spots that I visited during my trip to Istria in Croatia was the Limski Fjord, close to the town of Rovinj.  It’s also know as the Limski Kanal, Lim Fjrod or the Lim Channel.

Technically it’s not a fjord as the landform was not created by the movement of a glacier but the flow of the River Pazincica. However it looks enough like a fjord to have been used as the location for the shooting of the 1964 Viking adventure movie, “The Long Ships“.

There are many stalls there selling local produce and a restuarant with great views. It must get pretty busy there during high season and weekends so try to visit at a quiet time to avoid the crowds to fully appreciate the natural beauty of the Limski Fjord.
