Croatia 2 June: Poreč - Rovinj

sun-power in Croatia

Today we visited two touristic highlights of Croatia: Poreč and Rovinj. Both cities are most beautiful pearls in the Adriatic Sea!

We started the day at the city hall of Poreč.

The mayor of Poreč greeted us with kind words despite his busy schedule.

A group picture and our Peace Run song ended the nice meeting. Thank you for the hospitality!

...we explored alternative options of transport...

...and we bumped into several tourist groups...

The School of Art in Poreč was our next appointment. Some artists gave us a wonderful presentation of their skills.

Thank you for the warm welcome!

...a fun-run through the historic part of Poreč...

...we arrived at the "Bernardo Parentin" primary school...

The school is an Italian school - the perfect setup for our Italian runner Sandro.

...the kids enjoyed running along the Sea...

...and back through the pedestrian area...

"Grazie" for the enthusiasm!

...on our Run to Rovinj we met friends of some of or international team members - the world is really small....

Yours is the first step! In this heat a real challenge...

...approaching Rovinj...

...the original...

...and the replica...

..children of the primary school "Juria Dobrile" in Rovinj awaited us...

...high five and the kids joined in...

...a spy...

...we arrived in the school...

The city representative of Rovinj received the torch...

...a small concert by the school band...

...some mischievous kids untied our shoe-laces, but one girl tied them again...

..a short Run...

Thank you Rovinj for the joyful meeting!

Another sunny Peace Run day ended. Thank you for all the friendship!
