Holidays to Novigrad are dream-like retreats with picture-perfect views, delicious Croatian food and spectacular sunsets.
Peace and quiet
The seaside town of Novigrad's a hidden gem nestled between Porec
and Umag on Croatia
's Istrian Riviera
, where small fishing boats still bob in the working harbour. Secluded bathing spots sit in the shade of lofty pine trees, so you can chill out away from any hustle or bustle.
Ancient walls, modern museums
With its old-timey walls and 8th-century cathedral, Novigrad's packed with history. The Lapidarium Museum's modern on the outside, but it houses stone monuments from way back. All this is sandwiched between picturesque houses painted in bright, cheerful colours.
Novigrad plates up some seriously scrummy fare. Ingredients are plucked fresh from the soil and sea, and restaurants get creative with special tasting menus. There's even experimental molecular gastronomy – go for this and your dinner might just come served on a lava rock.
