Special Hospital for Orthopedics and Rehabilitation "Martin Horvat" Rovinj-Rovigno

The tradition of the Special Hospital for Orthopedics and Rehabilitation "Martin Horvat" Rovinj-Rovigno goes back to the Austro-Hungarian period. Owing to the beneficial Mediterranean climate and its location on the peninsula of St Pelagius, the hospital had been an attractive coastal health resort for the treatment of bone diseases of the then European aristocracy right from its founding.
The hospital complex was built under the patronage of Maria Theresa and inaugurated in her presence on 22 May 1888. The hospital’s opening was supported by Vienna-based doctors, particularly by prof. Luigi Monti, the first hospital director.
The hospital’s reputation as a health resort, as well as an ideal place for spending a holiday and undergoing orthopaedic rehabilitation, lasted for a century, and it ensured the loyalty of Austrian patients who gladly used the hospital services, mainly under long-term contracts with the AUVA Austrian insurance company. The Department of Surgery was active until the 1990s. Today, hospital treatment is based on physical medicine and rehabilitation with patients staying on either full or half board. Treatment in the hospital encompasses various types of physical therapy and rehabilitation, i.e. kinesiotherapy, hydrotherapy and electrotherapy in combination with beneficial properties of the surrounding nature (helio- and thalassotherapy).
The first therapeutic beach suitable for persons with health difficulties was opened in June 2017.

Free summer school of TAI CHI CHUAN and CHI KUNG

Enjoy practicing Tai chi chuan (Chen style) and Chi kung (energy exercises) in the magical Golden Cape Forest Park near the cedar star, surrounded by monumental, hundred-year-old Himalayan cedars, and with the instruction of an Anan-Do leader and a licensed Tai chi chuan trainer at the Olympic Croatia academy and the Croatian Wushu Association, Dino Sošić, who has been practicing tai chi chuan and chi kung for twenty years. Tai chi chuan is a physical, mental, meditative and therapeutic discipline based on the principles of Tai chi (Yin and Yang), and finds its roots in traditional Chinese exercise and martial arts, traditional Chinese medicine and philosophy. These are therapeutic exercises that consist of slow, continuous, circular (rounded), fluid and graceful movements in an upright position and movement. Practicing Tai Chi does not require special clothes, mats or props and can be practiced by all age groups...

In addition to being fun, practicing Tai chi chuan and Chi kung is also very useful: with regular practice, it has been proven that we directly improve movement coordination, maintaining balance, harmonizing the activities of the left and right hemispheres of the brain, regulation of metabolism, bone cell density, joint and spine mobility, elasticity of tendons and muscles, and we naturally deepen our breathing. It also has a positive effect on a number of physiological processes in the body: blood and energy circulation, blood pressure, blood sugar level, nervous system, organs with internal excretion and generally raising the body's immunity and better coping with stress (health-therapeutic prevention).
