House of Batana

Original souvenirs based on Rovinj’s fishing heritage—including key chains, T-shirts, and replicas of its traditional vessel, the batana—can be bought at the House of Batana museum. Besides batana-inspired souvenirs, you can pick up a small recipe book with old, almost-forgotten recipes from Rovinj fishermen, also available in English.
