Batana House

Museums Rovinj

This is surely the Mediterranean’s first multimedia museum dedicated to a fishing boat. The vessel in question is the batana, the traditional, flat-bottomed wooden boat of the Rovinj region. Still very much in use today, the batana is a living symbol of Rovinj culture. A modern exhibition, the museum uses film, music and interactive exhibits. It provides a taste of the local lifestyle with guides in traditional costumes and creative workshops where you can try your hand at making fishing nets or demijohns.
