... and a public holiday. We wandered the bare streets and took photos of the typical political buildings, many churches and landmarks, including (another) ancient Roman arch. From there we headed on up the 800 steps to the castle overlooking the bay.

When we got to Ljubjlana, I read their reply: yes it was there waiting to picked up! I still will pick up a camera for this part of our trip and retrieve my camera on our return to Rovinj.
