The Theatre Antonio Gandusio - In 1854, the building in which the "Antonio Gandusio" theater is located today was erected. On the ground floor of the building, once called Rubineo, there was a fish market and a butcher's shop, and on the first floor there was a large town hall. In 1865, the hall was transformed into a theater, which with its neoclassical facade lines and interesting interior is one of the oldest Istrian theaters. With the reconstruction in 1923, the theater was named after Antonio Gandusi, after one of the greatest comedians of the Italian "novecent", born in Rovinj in 1873, who recited and acted in the theater several times. Today, the popular "Gandusio" is a popular home of local and national theater associations, and since the 1990s it has been operating as a cinema.
About fifteen kilometers from Rovinj are the remains of medieval Divgrad. Like most Istrian maritime towns, Divgrad fell under Venetian rule. The city is very well preserved because it was not destroyed in the wars that ravaged Istria, but the inhabitants left the city for years. There are still city gates, several towers that defended the city and more than 200 houses have been preserved. Divrgrad has been abandoned for many years, left to itself and the ravages of time, but lately work is being done on the reconstruction and restoration of the city and the city is becoming an unavoidable place for all visitors
The Rovinj Village is a village about seven kilometers away from Rovinj. The surrounding area was inhabited in prehistory, and during Roman times, so it is rich in archaeological sites. Rovinjsko Selo was founded in 1526 by immigrants from the vicinity of Zadar, who were fleeing from the Turks. The church located in the village is dedicated to St. Anthony the Abbot. Rovinjsko Selo maintains a rich folklore and carnival tradition, old customs and habits related to rural civilization and balloon (balloon) which is a characteristic Istrian dance in pairs. For the feast of St. Anthony the Abbot, the patron saint of the village, Antonja is celebrated, which in the last twenty years has gained a new dimension as an exhibition of wine and olive oil.
The Rovinj Heritage Museum was founded in 1954 on the initiative of fine artists from Rovinj. They envisioned the museum as a place to gather cultural wealth and a place where a rich exhibition activity would take place. The museum functions as a city gallery and as a permanent museum space in which valuable works are exhibited, such as: archeological and naval exhibits, collections of old masters, contemporary Croatian art.During its existence, rich and valuable collections were created: contemporary art, archeological finds, ethnologies, books, documents and photographs, collections of old masters, etc. Due to the cramped space and rich gallery, a small part of the museum's holdings is available to visitors today.
