Batana Eco Museum
The traditional wooden vessel, batana, is one of the most recognizable symbols of Rovinj. Batana shows the continuity of local maritime heritage and the daily life of the local residents from the past. It represents a unique link that connects the local residents of various national identities, primarily Italian and Croatian. Numerous Rovinj batanas are made in ports and harbors even today. The Rovinj batanas are flat-bottomed vessels which, due to their long-lasting wooden structure, were taken under the auspices of UNESCO. In order to preserve the historical heritage, the Eco Museum House Batana was established, with a permanent exhibition of batanas, fishing gear and accessories. The museum keeps the story of the ancient boat, which is still a part of everyday life in Rovinj, alive with the help of various events. The museum has, among other awards, received the number one prize on The Heritage – the Excellance Club Congress.
