Novigrad, Croatia - holiday information

Novigrad, Croatia – visitor information

Novigrad is a fishing settlement in Istria that stretches from Dajla on the north all the way until the Mirna river mouth. Once known as Neapolis this town emerged on an island that was in the 18th century connected to mainland and apart for the natural beauties it takes pride in quality stone. Even today remains of fortifying walls, palaces and churches are still visible among which we would single out and recommend for visiting the Novigrad lapidarium museum ( a rich collection of 93 stone monuments from antiquity to medieval ages), the parish church of St. Pelagius and St. Maximus, Rigo palace, Dajla castle (summer villa) and others. Accommodation is available in quality apartments, rooms, hotels and camps and one of the most modern Adriatic marinas is also at your disposal. You can taste some of the autochthon Istrian delicacies there and visit restaurants Pepenero , Damir and Ornelia. Lovers of a more active vacation will be able to engage in water sports such as scuba diving and windsurfing or can test their limits on one of the bicycling paths. For your stay to be more romantic we suggest you join numerous visitors that gather on the west part of the city core and watch one of the most beautiful sunsets on this part of the Adriatic.
