Novigrad is located on the western coast of Istria. With its location, and proximity to nearby countries Slovenia, Italy and Austria, it’s the ideal place for nautical tourism lovers.
The area where Novigrad lies today was already inhabited in ancient times, as evidenced by numerous monuments and archaeological sites. In written documents Novigrad is mentioned under various names; originally as Neapolis in the 7th century, or Civitas Nova in the 9th century, and in the 12th century church sources is mentioned as Emona or Emonia. The Old town is located on an island which was connected with the mainland in the 18th century. The well-preserved city walls that embrace and preserve all the rich history of this city, its valuable cultural heritage and tradition, are the most interesting symbol of the city.
Novigrad is the city with one of the cleanest seas in this part of the Mediterranean. The riviera of Novigrad stretches from Dajla to the confluence of the river Mirna and is characterized by a rugged, low and accessible coast with rocky and sandy beaches. Novigrad has the charm of a quiet fishing town that is tightly connected to its residents that regularly gather in the Mandrač bay. The bay acts as a small fishing harbor for local boats and fish trading.
