Tourism in Novigrad
An interesting fact is that Novigrad had its first official tourist guide in 1845, thanks to Pietro Kandler. Today, Novigrad is definitely visible on the tourist radar of both Istria and Croatia. If you want to stay in a hotel located in the very heart of Novigrad just meters from the towns harbour you should definitely take a look at hotel Nautica****. Outside of Novigrad center you will find hotels Aminess Maestral**** and Aminess Laguna***, two of the most popular hotels in the area. In Mareda a bit north of Novigrad you might stumble upon the Aminess Maravea Camping resort****, a home to luxurious mobile homes placed close to the sea and the beach. Close to Maravea another set of mobile homes is located in Camping Kastanija***.
