Golden Cape Rovinj - The most important information

Golden Cape forest park, or Punta corrente, is one of Rovinj's most important natural attractions. The uniqueness of the Golden Cape was recognized by the fact that this area was declared a protected forest park in 1961. Today, this is one of the most popular destinations in Rovinj, and it is the first choice for all citizens of Rovinj during the weekend.

History of Golden Cape
The story of Golden Cape begins in the 19th century, when Georg Hütterott bought four islands of the Rovinj archipelago, namely the islands of Saint Andrija, Maskin, Sturag, and Saint Ivan. At that time, around 90 hectares of the Zlatni rt area began landscaping to build a climatic health resort. Although his untimely death interrupted this project, those years represent the beginning of tourism development in this area.
